Women making big contributions to NOAA:

Kristin Rusello (left) provided outstanding service for NOAA Fisheries, tackling the challenge of producing a high profile report to Congress on the identification and certification of nations engaged in illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing. Kristin’s organizational, communication and time management skills and her attention to detail supported the timely production of the report. Her skills enhanced office morale and supported the effective teamwork needed to complete numerous time-critical tasks. Her ability to develop and implement procedures to enhance productivity and efficiency avoided duplication and greatly facilitated the accomplishment of the many complex and interrelated activities that culminated in the on-time submission of this significant report.

Joselyd Garcia (right) manages OMAO’s Document Management System, which consists of more than 1,900 policies, procedures, ship specific documents and Marine Operations bulletins. She publishes, tracks and maintains documents through active management of the document owner notification system. Joselyd has worked on a variety of projects across OMAO HQ and Marine Operations. She has gained significant technical knowledge of fleet operations and administrative requirements through working with subject matter experts on document development. This depth of understanding allowed her to work directly with document developers, and moving the Marine Operations procedure development process forward at a faster pace. Marine Operations field personnel benefit significantly from her professional, friendly and prompt service response updating ship specific instructions, supplying them with missing documents or keeping them up to date on changes in OMAO processes.
