Jenna Paukstis, manufacturing director at Northrop Grumman, is named one of the 25 Women to Watch by The Baltimore Sun, recognizing them as the leading voices of the Baltimore area in business, activism, research and more.

Jenna Paukstis has been in the Baltimore department of Northrop Grumman Mission Systems for six months and she is already crazy about it. "From airborne to space to ground base to Naval, we do it all," she said. Jenna did not expect to monitor the production of military equipment when she studied engineering at the university, but eventually she fell for industrial engineering because it's human interaction, technical challenges and business focus all combined. Since then she has worked in production and program management.

'Challenge the status quo, stand up for what you believe in and keep your options open' - the career advice from the award-winning engineer.
