Ms. Williams began her career as an Aircraft Engine Mechanic for the U.S. Navy. She was well versed in organizational maintenance (“O”–level), which included removing and replacing aircraft engines and auxiliary power units, and performing routine maintenance on defective parts for superior performance of the GE F–404/414 (F–18 models C/D and E/G) and Pratt and Whitney J–52 (EA–6B) engine and fuel systems.  She was an accomplished intermediate maintainer (“I”–level), including intricate maintenance tearing down/rebuilding General Electric F–404/F–414 engines (F–18 Hornet/F–18 Super Hornet) and General Electric TF–34 (S–3 Viking) engines and afterburners.

On leaving the Navy, Ms. Williams worked as Lead Aircraft Technician for Northern Florida Facilities Management. She ensured senior civilian and military officials (O–5 and above) attended scheduled meetings.  She provided feedback, service, and support as needed for civilian and senior military personnel and various military squadrons.  Ms. Williams’ duties included ensuring U.S. Navy personnel and civilian contractors complied with Joint Base Andrews’ aviation flight line, runway, and emergency aircraft and flight line procedures for a mishap‑free workplace. When Northern Florida lost the contract for this work, she joined Hallmark-Phoenix Aircraft Services to continue to support the Navy under this contract.

Following this, Ms.Williams worked for Capitol Government Contract Specialists as a Technical/Specifications writer, supporting contracts for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). She assisted with preparing contract technical specifications for all procurement material, requests for proposals and proposal forms, general provisions, general requirements, special conditions, amendments, and modifications for all rail car equipment procurement contracts.  She developed, prepared, and revised guides and standard specifications for routine maintenance to ensure specifications were technically current, met industry standards, provided maximum equipment availability and reliability, and conformed to WMATA policies and procedures.

At Morgan Borszcz Consulting, Ms. Williams prepared, edited, wrote, and reviewed military instructions and templates; technical orders, manuals, and publications; the Illustrated Parts Catalog; and other technical documents for the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force. She reviewed documents for order, clarity, style, and terminology, and recommended revisions to scope and content.

As an Operations Officer for SAIC, Ms. Williams was tasked with collecting and analyzing information on the status of operations in the National Airspace System such as facility outages, aircraft accidents and incidents, security events, severe weather, and unusual occurrences, as well as all occurrences that may affect the operating status of aviation worldwide.  She was responsible for the operation of internal and external communications systems, both secure and unsecured; coordinating inter- and intra-office communications; and drafting and editing reports, project documents, and official memoranda.
