Chika attended a conference put on by the Society of Women Engineers in order to interview with a company she had her eye on. Walking around, she was stopped by a lady who liked her shoes. The woman—who happened to represent Northrop Grumman—asked for her resume, and the rest was history.
Chika begins her mornings in meetings to align goals and schedules with co-workers across electrical, computer, mechanical, and aeronautical Engineering Departments. They liaise on issues from innovation and new designs to processes and performance. Together, the teams ensure coordination throughout the company and deliver consistently clever creations for the Northrop Grumman organization.
