Where Are They Now?

  POSTED ON: Friday, February 8, 2019 2:06 PM by

"Where are they now" is a series featuring Naval Academy grads and their careers!

Our first "Where are they now" feature is 2015 grad LTJG Emily Judstra.

Company: 6th
Major/Degree: Chemistry with a Biochemistry Concentration
Initial Service Selection: Surface Warfare (SWO)
Current Designator: Public Affairs Officer (PAO)
Extracurricular Activities: Navy Women's Soccer, Ski Team, MSTEM

“I commissioned as a SWO eager to drive littoral combat ships and eventually had the intention of going to medical school," said LTJG Judstra. "However, when I got to the Fleet and met some of our Navy Public Affairs Officers, I knew that being a strategic communicator was exactly how I wanted to serve my country. I was fortunate enough to be selected for a lateral transfer into the Public Affairs community in 2017 and in the last two years, I've been privileged enough to share the stories of Naval Aviation across the country, work on a major motion picture, and welcome home several thousand Sailors on our aircraft carriers."
