Upon her retirement in 2014, the NASA Administrator wrote, “You can be proud of how you applied your engineering ingenuity and influence to achieve national space program initiatives in human spaceflight and robotic science missions; the supporting tracking networks and data systems; and more recently the expendable launch services necessary for access to space.”
