Suzanne Short, PMP, started her journey with the USAF with a Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) scholarship to study Aeronautical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Upon graduation, she was commissioned in the USAF as a Second Lieutenant.

Suzanne was stationed at Robins AFB as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer. She worked first with KC-135s and then C-5s.  At the time, the USAF had a group of engineers participate in a career broadening program as their first assignment. The concept was to have members of the acquisition corps gain operational experience understanding the user’s perspective before working on new development programs. She was also in charge of over 100 personnel and learned about balancing the needs of the mission with the needs of the people.

Her second assignment was as a Flight Test Engineer for JSTARS. This assignment brought her to the Space Coast. It also exposed her to requirements development, Earned Value Management, and development life cycle management.

Suzanne now leverages her knowledge as a consultant at Catania Enterprises supporting companies with Project Management and Engineering needs.
