Teresa Vanhooser has been appointed deputy director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. She will assist Marshall Center Director Patrick Scheuermann in managing one of NASA's largest field installations, with nearly 6,000 on- and near-site civil service and contractor employees -- including those at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans -- and an annual budget of approximately $2.5 billion. Vanhooser will help oversee a broad range of propulsion, scientific and space transportation activities contributing to the nation's space program. A native of Johnson City, Tenn., Vanhooser began her NASA career at Marshall in 1980 as an engineer in the Ground Systems Analysis Branch, leading work to integrate and test payloads for the Spacelab carrier, used to conduct science experiments in the space shuttle's payload bay.
