Episode 1: Clara Rivero-Baleine

?

As a young girl living in Cuba, Clara Rivero-Baleine wanted to change the world. Her passion for helping others and her curiosity in physics led her to pursue a career in science.

?

?

When Clara was 16, she and her family fled to the United States in search of a better life where she quickly learned English by watching classic sitcoms and eventually became valedictorian of her graduating high school class. She continued her STEM journey at the University of Central Florida which led her to a position at Lockheed Martin, where she has excelled in her field for nearly two decades.

Clara’s impact at Lockheed Martin spans beyond our products and our people. She hopes to be an example for the next generation of Latina women who are interested in choosing a career in STEM through her advocacy, college outreach and breaking barriers within the workplace.

Episode 2: Jake Murphy

?

Jake Murphy’s commitment to ensuring our customers stay Ahead of Ready is personal. Jake attended 美诱直播st Point for four years and became a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army in 2009. He deployed to Afghanistan as a Platoon Leader in March of 2011.?

It was there that Jake’s life changed in an instant. On July 23, 2011, Jake went on patrol in Kandahar to conduct an intense three-day search when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) meant for a truck, resulting in traumatic injuries and the loss of both of his legs. He remembers a few specific details of the explosion, like the?BLACK HAWK? helicopter that helped him escape further danger and gave him the chance to retell what he calls his “alive day.”?

?

It was a long journey to recovery and getting acquainted with his new normal but Jake’s familiarity of having the right capabilities in combat motivated him to continue serving his country from a different perspective. When Jake began his career at Lockheed Martin, he was impressed by the talented engineers and innovative technologies our company develops, as well as the support and resources available for the veteran workforce who have used our systems in real-world scenarios.?

Now, Jake leads a team to ensure PAC-3 remains unmatched for our customers amidst increasing global demand for the world’s most advanced air defense missile. He also participates in Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control’s new hire orientation where he shares his story and offers his unique perspective on the importance of staying focused on the mission.?

More than a decade has passed since his “alive day” but when Jake looks at the Purple Heart and Bronze Star he received for his valor, he reflects on the brave men and women who never made it back home, some of whom were close friends of his. He continues his work for them and the thousands of men and women who fight for our freedom every day.?

Episode 3: Barry Bohnsack

Meet Barry Bohnsack, Space

Barry Bohnsack vividly remembers launching model rockets into the sky on his grandparents' farm in Oklahoma and an eye-opening family trip to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) when he was child. He thought he’d grow up to be a banker like his father, however, while studying Finance at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and volunteering side by side with Lockheed Martin engineers, new career aspirations were inspired, leading him to his dream job at the company on the Artemis program team and dedicating his life to growing future STEM talent within his community.? ?

?

In high school, Barry and his family moved to Florida where he joined a FIRST? Robotics Competition team and landed a part-time job as an educator at the KSC Visitor Complex. He taught students about the future of NASA and the new Orion spacecraft that was poised to take humans into deep space. As part of the education program, Barry gave hundreds of students a paper model Orion and on it read ‘Lockheed Martin,’ one of several signs throughout his time at KSC that emphasized the company’s commitment to the space industry. ?

While attending classes at UCF (also known as “Space U”) and working at the KSC Visitor Complex education department, Barry volunteered with FIRST Robotics Competition team in its rookie season, known as Exploding Bacon. The team was also sponsored and mentored by Lockheed Martin and several of its engineers. With the support and advice from one of the Exploding Beacon mentors, Barry landed an internship with Lockheed Martin and is now the production planner on the Orion spacecraft heatshield. Barry’s mission is to keep the crew safe upon Earth re-entry as the astronauts?return from the Moon.

Barry’s commitment to furthering space exploration puts the world one historic step closer to pushing the boundaries of innovation. This mission also signifies a huge leap for aspiring and underrepresented astronauts. The Artemis II crew will include Christina Koch, Victor Glover and Jeremy Hansen, who will be the first woman, person of color and Canadian to travel around the Moon, respectively. Commander Reid Wiseman will lead all four of them farther from Earth than any human has traveled previously.

Barry currently serves as the master of ceremonies at robotics competitions.

The boundless future of space fuels Barry’s passion of sharing his exciting career journey to influence and attract future talent. During his free time, Barry gives back by coaching his local robotics team, teaches robotic concepts and is the master of ceremonies for FIRST Robotics Competitions. Barry’s ultimate goal is to make science fun and pay it forward to those who inspired his career by inspiring the next generation of STEM students.
