Meet Rhonda - Product Specialist
How long have you worked for DLA Land and Maritime? 12 years
How long have you worked for the government? 16 years
What do you like about your job? I like that I work closely with my team members and several other agencies yet have the capabilities to work independently on projects and problem solve.
What is the best piece of advice someone has given you? Choose to be happy no matter what. Don’t allow your circumstances or surroundings to control your happiness.
What do you hope to accomplish in 2019? I hope to accomplish finding and assisting many more small businesses through the process of successfully becoming approved sources for our DLA Aircraft Launch and Recovery Equipment parts.
What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be an actress or a tap dancer. Since that didn’t work out, the next best thing was to join the Navy and work for DLA.
