    Sherri – Business Manager

    Head shot photo of Sherri What critical choices did you make growing up that helped you get where you are today?
    I chose to enroll in my high school’s Cooperative Office education program that started my career at Goddard.

    What do you do in your job?
    Working with engineers, scientists and program management, I oversee the development and execution of the multi-million dollar Hubble budget. I am responsible for the integrity of the data and ensuring the finances are sufficient to accomplish the mission’s goals. I also monitor the program workforce so that we maintain levels of employment sufficient to accomplish and sustain a successful mission.

    What do you do in your free time?
    Scuba diving, reading, home improvements and gardening.

    Gibran – Financial Analyst

    Head shot photo of Gibran What do you like about your job?
    At NASA, there are a lot of inquisitive minds. A large part of the workforce is composed of scientists, so the place where I work is a center of learning. People come to share and build their knowledge about a great variety of things. I have the opportunity to learn to how to manage large-dollar contracts, as well as what it takes to operate and upgrade an incredibly complex spaced-based telescope.

    What do you do in your free time?
    I run a small herbal tea company which takes up most of my “free” time now. I also do yoga, read a lot, and listen to hip-hop, jazz, and good music a little bit of everywhere.

    Vince – Financial Manager

    No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

    What do you wish you’d known then that you know now about education after high school?
    I wish I knew that most employers won’t interview you without at least a bachelor’s degree. If known, I would have gone to school full time and obtained my degree before entering the workforce. Before I got my degree, I was forced to prove that I could do the job before I was considered for an interview.

    What school subjects do you use at work?
    All mathematics, writing (both technical and constructive), and the most important subject I was forced to take in high school – typing!
