Profile: Sr. Mary Elizabeth, OSM

Personal background
I am a former Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, 1955-1974, and Sergeant First Class, US Army, 1976-77. In 1969, I transferred to the Naval Reserve, after I joined the "Man in the Sea" project at the Makai Undersea Test Range in Hawaii.

In 1971, I joined Kentron Hawaii, and I spent the next 22 months as a project coordinator at Kwajalein Missile Range, supporting the development of the Safeguard antiballistic missile system. With the signing of the ABM treaty, I returned to the University of Hawaii, to work on my degree.

I'm 66, originally from Pontiac, Michigan, and currently residing in southern California, where I work in AIDS education.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Given the size of the universe, I find it difficult to imagine that life does not exist elsewhere. I have been a SETI fan since its inception, and I currently run SETI on our five servers and three workstations at the AEGiS facility.

I believe we should be transmitting information about our species to aid other civilizations in their quest to find us.

SETI@home is a fantastic project. It has brought people from all walks of life together, demonstrating that despite our differing cultural, socio-economic, and political situations, we can work together to achieve a common goal.
