Staff Software Engineer, General Dynamics
Attended: From Specialist to Strategist

“I heard about the Specialist to Strategist leadership program through several other women I work with at General Dynamics who had taken the course. They gave the course rave reviews! Smith’s program was the first leadership program I ever attended, and I learned so many empowering ways of thinking that I am able to apply at work. The program had an immediate impact on my work. The impact of the program on my life outside of work is that priorities are now clear. My Smith experience in sum: the curriculum, faculty and learning environment were inspirational! I wish every woman in our company could attend the Smith program.”
