F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --

What’s your name?

Alice J. MacVey                

 

Where do you work?

90 CES; in the CEN flight

 

So what do you do around here?

A little bit of everything!  But really, project management to support the infrastructure of the base.  My job is to execute design and construction projects to maintain existing and construct new facilities on base. in addition, I work with customers in other squadrons to troubleshoot their concerns and assist them with generating projects requests as well as coordinating with other squadrons to ensure that any project that we are working incorporates their standards (for example any improvements at the gates I work with Security Forces) and meets their intent as the end user. 

 

How long have you been here?

5 years in September

 

What do you feel you contribute to the mission?

I feel as though my contributions are typically more in support of the mission itself. We work hard here to provide continuity within CE throughout construction and implementation of GBSD and beddown of facilities supporting the MH-139, which we know directly impacts the mission. 

 

Where are you from?

Laramie, WY. 

 

Were you active duty?

Nope.  Started in the private sector before shifting to FE Warren in 2016.

 

What’s your alma mater, if you care to share?

University of Wyoming! I BLEED brown and gold.

 

Do you have any hobbies? If so, what are they?

Lots!  My absolute favorite thing to do is scuba dive!  I also paint with acrylics and get outside as often as possible.  Camping and hiking (in fair weather) are some of my favorites when I can’t get to the tropics for a dive trip. 

 

What are your favorite sports team(s), if any?

Obviously UW Cowboys (even though it’s typically rough to be a fan) as well as the Philadelphia Eagles (my spouse would kick me out if I rooted for anyone else! Ha!)

 

What do you want the wing to know about you?

Oh man.  That’s a broad question! I suppose I would say that I believe that a little bit of hard work goes a long way… and the comradery and support I’ve seen at every squadron within the wing has made this an easy task and a great wing to work with.  I’m always willing to listen and at least try to help. 

 

What’s your favorite quote or saying?

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”  Because, no matter where you are, we could all benefit from a little more kindness.
