Women in Science Event

On Friday, Oct. 7, 2011, WISP hosted a luncheon event for its Visiting Women in Science program.Christen Shepherd

Christen Einsiedler Shepherd '00 is a computer scientist at the National Security Agency. After earning her M.S. in Computer Science at the University of Tulsa, where her graduate work focused on Network Security, she began working at the Agency in 2004.  She has served in a variety of positions at NSA including an external detail to the Executive Office of the President. At Dartmouth, she majored in Computer Science and minored in Women's Studies.  She was an active participant in the Dartmouth Asian Organization, WISP, a staff member of the Office of Residential Life, and the Palaeopitus Senior Society. Now a working mom of two energetic boys, Christen is thrilled to connect with Dartmouth students interested in technology and the Intelligence Community. In her luncheon talk she hopes to relay some of her experiences from Dartmouth and how they prepared her for her career, as well as share her journey to NSA.
