The Amazing Women of VMSI's
Corporate Office in Sterling, VA.

Today (and every day, actually!) VMSI salutes the talented women we’re proud to have amongst our ranks. In case you didn’t already know, most of the corporate staff in Sterling is comprised of hard-working, smart women dedicated to fulfilling VMSI’s mission – “To be the BEST decision our clients make.” We’re working on a new monthly series entitled “Get to Know Corporate”, but in the meantime and on this day of celebration, we’d like to acknowledge the women who make it happen here in Sterling:

Jackie, VP, because of whom this runs like a well-oiled machine, for your ability to see the big picture and keep it all in line with a wry sense of humor.

Katherine, Director of HR, for your measured and fair approach to employee relations and your superb scrapbooking and photographic talents.

Kylene, Director of Recruiting, for your genuinely cheerful and engaging personality that makes people really want to come work for VMSI, and who always exudes friendship and warmth.

Paige, Director of Proposals and Marketing, for your astute artistic and grammatical prowess that makes us look and sound great, and who always has time to champion women’s and victim’s rights in the community.

Maria, HR Associate, for your efforts to warmly welcome new employees and make sure they get paid (but please submit your timesheet on time!) and who always has a moment to listen to whatever issue you’re having.

Heather, Sr. Project Analyst, for your ability to step into any situation to help, and who isn’t afraid to learn and grow into new responsibilities with grace and humility.

Emily, Program Manager, for your dogged determination on any task you’re assigned, and your ability to confidently take new information and skills and quickly assimilate them into your skillset.

Francesca, Operations Specialist, for your fresh perspective and organizational skills that keeps the onboarding process flowing smoothly and the cupboards always stocked.

There are just too many amazing women supporting VMSI out in the field to mention in this brief forum, but know that you’re appreciated just as much as the women here at corporate!  Thanks, ladies, for all you do for VMSI.

About International Women’s Day: March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first March 8 IWD gathering supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific. Make IWD your day – everyday! For more information, visit: www.internationalwomensday.com
