Who am I:
I am passionate about inspiring and connecting women in aerospace. I do this through promoting women in the field doing amazing things, enabling women to better navigate the industry, and providing insight for hiring and retaining female talent in aerospace.
What I do:
I am a Senior Program Manager for NASA and Civil Space Programs at SpaceLink. SpaceLink is developing the high-speed commercial replacement to TDRSS using optical links from users to our relay satellites. I am leading a program to demonstrate our capability on the ISS, so I like to say that I’m putting lasers on the space station!
In 2016 I founded the Bay Area Women in Space and Aerospace group, which holds events locally with female speakers. Through advocacy with this group, my passion has grown for helping companies hire and retain female talent in the industry.
Why you should follow me on Linkedin:
I hope to provide followers with a view into my non-traditional career in aerospace while sharing industry and personal achievements with positivity.

Jeanette’s Favorite Post
This event was held March 11, 2020 just as the world was shutting down. I hosted and moderated a panel at one of the largest space conferences, the Satellite Conference in Washington, DC, about hiring and retaining women with HR leaders in the industry. The panel shared tangible tips and tricks with the audience on a topic I’d like to see get more attention from industry leaders.
Jeanette‘s Successful Post
Humbly, my most successful post was receiving an award as a Rising Star by the Women in Space organization. I received this at an event I co-hosted with Hogan Lovells (as always, thanks to Randy Segal) which featured Suzi McBride of Iridium.
