The NMCI Program Office is pleased to announce that Jennifer Freed, NMCI service delivery integrated product team lead, is the winner of a 2010 Women in Technology Leadership Award. Ms. Freed received the Unsung Hero Award for her unyielding dedication to improve the NMCI.
Ms. Freed is responsible for the end-to-end delivery of multiple strategic initiatives that have helped transition more than 700,000 DON personnel at 3,000 sites to NMCI. Most recently, she led NMCI's support of the DON's Haiti relief efforts by working with the supporting commands to expand the network and IT infrastructure to increase capabilities to those on the ground.
"Jennifer is driven, goal-oriented, and always puts the operational requirements of the United States Navy first. Her boots on the ground leadership of the NMCI recovery efforts after the earthquake in Haiti and the flood in Millington, Tennessee are two recent examples of her dedication and expertise," said Capt. Scott Weller, program manager for the NMCI and ONE-Net. "She does this without compromising her 'day job' that includes the smooth deployment of nearly 100,000 new laptop and desktop computer workstations each year."
"Receiving the Women in Technology's Unsung Hero award is truly an honor. It is wonderful to be recognized as having an impact on NMCI and my team. I am continually grateful to be able to come to work every day and do something that I love for an organization and mission that I believe is vitally important to the Department of Navy," Ms. Freed said.
