My name is Michelle O'Briant. I am a Chief Petty Officer in the US Navy. I am originally from Chicago, and have lived in the Ventura County area for the last six years. For the last 15 years I have served several roles in the US Navy. First, I was merely a worker, troubleshooting and repairing aircraft electronics equipment. As my time in the military progressed, and I advanced through the ranks, I became a supervisor, manager, administrator, and trainer of junior sailors. As Training Petty Officer and later Training Department Chief I developed classes and wrote lectures on topics such as equipment safety, Naval history, and electronics troubleshooting/repair techniques, and Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP) quality assurance requirements.
