United States Coast Guard Lieutenant Jeannette Rincon currently serves as the Communications Command Operations Department Head. Her role allows her to offer a wide variety of telecommunications services to support the fleet, shore commanders, and other government agencies. Essentially, when people are in need of help and rescue, the unit she oversees helps provide the communication means to facilitate the response.
Jeannette is not just a champion for her community, she is also a champion for girls specifically. She is currently a Girl Scout troop leader and helps lead 18 girls in weekly activities to deliver the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. She works hard to introduce girls to nontraditional careers and shows girls that they can!
During the last government shutdown, Jeannette partnered with local business to coordinate and facilitate food and assistance drives benefiting those affected by the shutdown. Volunteering at a local food pantry, she distributed necessary items such as household, food, baby and pet items to over 100 families in need.
