Background Information
I studied biology and computer programming at UCSD, and left there in 1972. I got a job at JPL as programmer in 1975, and am still here in '03. I'm not yet bored so I've stayed here. I met my husband of 23 years here. All my telemetry knowledge has come from working here. Now I no longer program, but write requirements for programmers, and help missions with their telemetry processing in many ways.

Contributions to Mars Exploration

Worked in the early stages of the mission to define telemetry formats, see how ground system needed to change to accommodate, and helped with telemetry processing requirements writing. (This was written in the early stages, April 2003. [more contributions ...]
