Thunderbird Lands at GSA


What do you do after spending more than 2,100 hours flying fighter jets, including a stint as a member of the elite Air Force Thunderbirds unit?

How about working for the government's central procurement agency? That's what Air Force Maj. Nicole Malachowski, the first woman to fly with the Thunderbirds, is doing. The General Services Administration announced Tuesday that Malachowski has joined the agency as a White House fellow for one year.

“GSA is an amazing agency that helps our nation in more ways than most people realize,” Malachowski said. “I’m thrilled to be here and looking forward to working on everything from presidential transition to emergency response and recovery issues.”
