Women in Leadership Profile: Brittany Barnwell

2021-12-24T03:51:05+00:00

Women in Leadership Profile: Brittany Barnwell By Deb Moller To be an effective emergency manager, it helps to be an insider. After all, insiders speak the same language, rely on the same tactics, share a history, exercise together. They learn from each other in after action reviews. They count on the kind of trust that comes with promises made and promises kept over many years. Brittany Barnwell worked as an insider emergency manager in Bamberg County, South Carolina. Even now, over a year into her transition to advising Seattle City Lights on emergency management, Brittany knows she can still call [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Shannon Marheine By Deb Moller If I told you that a woman is an ardent motorcycle enthusiast, riding a 2016 Indian Scout 60 motorcycle every chance she gets, it wouldn’t lead you to assume she works in homeland security. After all, what’s the connection? Shannon Marheine says riding her motorcycle is a lot like her work in homeland security - she loves it, it’s fast, it requires paying attention to everything at the same time, you can’t phone it in, you’re never a passive passenger on the ride, and you’re always anticipating whatever obstacle or danger [...]

Interview With Rising star: Tamara Corpin Linda Crerar: Share with us what it was that drew you to the Homeland Security Emergency Management field. Tamara Corpin: Before getting my degree in Homeland Security, my background was education. So, I had spent many years teaching and developing a curriculum. One of the hats that I wore wasn’t officially titled but developing Emergency Operations plans. And so, I enjoyed that aspect of what I was doing in education.

Interview With Rising star: Shontieka Adeogun Linda Crerar: What initially drew you to Homeland Security Emergency Management? Shontieka Adeogun: I thought at first that I wanted to be a nurse. My grandma, a nurse, raised me, and I initially thought that I wanted to be a nurse to honor her because she was my mom. But, unfortunately, she just passed away recently. And when I was doing my clinical, I was, you know, I thought to myself, this probably really isn’t my calling—one-to-one patient care.
