Ansley Collins Browns '01 reflects on confidence, curiosity, and her career at NASA 
Ansley Collins Browns '01 was recently promoted to be the manager of the International Space Station Payloads and Commercial Facilites Branch at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. She's leading a group of engineers who will ensure that the research equipment on the International Space Station is working properly so that astronauts can execute the experiments that scientists send into space. Browns, who received BSC's Outstanding Young Alumni Award in 2014, says she's well-prepared for her new role in part because of the versatile education she received at BSC.
