Subject: From the Office of the Executive Director

Good Morning everyone, it is with heavy heart and a great deal of mixed emotions that I am announcing my intent to leave NASA effective close of business March 18, 2011. After nearly 26 years of service with NASA, including stops at JSC, NASA Headquarters, SSC, KSC, and the NSSC, I will be pursuing career interests in private industry. I have enjoyed my career with NASA immensely and am most grateful for the opportunity provided by this outstanding organization. The past 7 years of my career have been focused on designing, developing, implementing, and stabilizing the NSSC, and I have never worked with a more talented, dedicated group of individuals than the NSSC team. Your focus, determination, and indomitable spirit (especially in the rebuilding effort after Hurricane Katrina) have been an inspiration to me and my family, and I will always look on my NSSC days with the absolute fondest of memories.

I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to lead this first-class organization – I will miss you all.
