Emme

Christy Gerencher is a Senior Program Officer at the Transportation Research Board. She manages hundreds of volunteers across more than a dozen committees all working to advance research in Aviation and Environmental Science. She's been an aviation nerd since day 1 - or least since she was old enough to drive to the airport for piloting lessons.
In our conversations, she shared with me what exactly the National Academies do and how their research propels government decisions. We also chatted about her experience as a woman working in aviation, an industry notorious for low participation of women and minorities. Throughout her career, she's had opportunities to work with some amazing people and she shared some advice to young professionals beginning their careers.
