Shelley Howe works in DLA Aviation Ogden as a distribution facilities specialist. She is from South Weber, Utah and her hobbies include pickleball, golf, fishing and camping.
Shelley’s experience working on the COVID-19 frontlines:
“One of the biggest changes during the COVID-19 I’ve encountered is controlling access to essential personnel to reduce potential exposure. I take pride keeping the entire Shop Service Center safe and sanitized regularly with the limited number of personnel having access to multiple exposed surfaces. The example I set has had a ripple effect throughout my building. During the pandemic I have reported to my duty location every day with the exception of personal leave to ensure my two high risk coworkers expo- sure was at an absolute minimum, while also continuing to provide a face to the customer without degradation in support.”
