A Systematic Approach to Personal Goal Development

Summary:

Creating personal goals are often described as daunting and extremely time consuming however; it does not have to be. Each step we walk is accounted for in a directional heading of North, East, South, and West (NESW). Prior to the execution of our steps, there was a plan, a goal, a yearning to travel to a particular destination. This is where our direction is identified. Goals are constructed in a similar way. This systematic approach provides step-by-step guidelines to develop realistic personal goals. This interactive and innovative personal goal development presentation will change your life.

Presenter: Jessica Donaldson, System Modeling Simulation Engineer, Northrop Grumman

Ms. Jessica Donaldson is a Systems Modeling Simulation Engineer for Northrop Grumman. As an engineer, Ms. Donaldson is responsible for leading development and integration system simulation frameworks and performance models. She heads collaborative efforts with multidiscipline teams to employ complex applications by simulating real-time operations and developing software that simulate the behavior of these systems. Ms. Donaldson is also the chair of Signal Processing Society, which is the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Long Island Chapter. Ms. Donaldson interest spans many fields, but her foundation is deeply rooted in academia. As such, she works closely with the West Point Leadership Ethics And Diversity in STEM (LEADS) program as well as volunteers in many Science, Technology, Engineer, and Mathematics (STEM) community related programs. Ms. Donaldson enjoys playing basketball, running, cooking and volunteering for veterans in her spare time. Ms. Donaldson holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics with a minor in computer information science from the State University of New York (SUNY) Old Westbury. She has a master’s degree in applied mathematics and statistics, with a concentration in operations research, from SUNY Stony Brook. Ms. Donaldson is currently a doctoral candidate at The George Washington University in systems engineering.
