Born in Houston, Texas the middle of eight children. Parents, Cora Marie Moore (deceased) and Jonah Moore Jr. (deceased). Attended Houston public school system, completing a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (1981), and a Masters in Elementary Education (University of Phoenix, 2007). Began her career as a contractor at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Johnson Space Center (JSC) (1981) immediately upon graduating from Prairie View A&M University where she worked in the Shuttle Avionics Integration Lab (SAIL). Her contractor career at JSC spanned the Shuttle Program and International Space Station Program where she started as a math modeler conducting analysis on flight simulation data; worked on the Guidance, Navigation and Control (GN&C) console in the Test Operations Center (TOC); and eventually worked in the Mission Operations Directorate (MOD) as a Mission and Scheduling Integrator and later as a Test Manager working with the Flight Control Team to test and verify the reconfigurable software loads for the International Space Station. In 2004, she moved to Washington, DC where she began her civil service career with NASA Headquarters in the Office of Education as the Executive Officer to the first African American and first African American female to head up the Office of Education for NASA. She remained in the Office of Education for a brief while and moved on to the Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO). In the Office of the CIO, she served as the Division Manager for the E-Government and Policy Office, Assistant Associate CIO for Integrated Information Solutions Division, and Assistant Associate CIO for E-Government and Policy Division. Her time at Headquarters afforded her the opportunity to see NASA from an agency perspective and to understand the inner workings of government. She worked extensively on IT policy, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandates, Congressional actions, and had countless opportunities to see the Federal government at work up close. In 2008, she returned to Johnson Space Center and began working in the Information Resources Directorate (IRD), where she served as the Office Chief for both the Business Management and IT Policy Office and the Project Management and Technical Integration Office. In each of these positions, she was responsible for leading and working with teams across the directorate, the center, and the agency. She eventually, and rather quickly moved into the role of the Deputy Director for IRD and the Deputy CIO for the Johnson Space Center. Currently she is the Johnson Space Center Chief Information Officer and the Director of the Information Resources Directorate. In this role she has been engaged at the center and agency strategic and leadership path which has afforded her the greatest fulfillment in her career – having the opportunity to contribute to the development and growth of individuals and an organization and to be able to influence the direction of the center, the agency, and the organization for which she has the responsibility to lead.
