Editor’s note: As we celebrate Women’s History Month at Hill Air Force Base, we are featuring some of Team Hill’s female military and federal service employees through a series of spotlight articles.

Meet Jennifer Tromble, engineering director for the Ogden Air Logistics Complex’s 309th Commodities Maintenance Group. Tromble leads a team of 130 process engineers in support of her group’s maintenance team.

She started a career with the Air Force due to an interest in exploring the technical aspects of maintaining and troubleshooting in the aerospace field. Over time, she came to feel connected to the Air Force mission and has been a part of Team Hill for more than 18 years. She said she never imagined herself as a group engineering director, but embraces the role.

“It is something that I never envisioned I would achieve when I started my career 18 years ago,” Tromble said. “It’s a testament to how hard I’ve worked and grown over the years and a recognition of my ability to not only solve day-to-day problems, but also have a strategic mindset toward the future and mentor and grow my team.”

She said today, more than ever, there are many opportunities available in different positions and organizations within the Air Force for women who are willing to work hard.

Tromble said Women’s History Month is a great time to recognize the contributions women have made throughout history. She admires Marie Curie as a pioneering scientist who made huge contributions to the understanding of radioactive materials.

“She did it in a time that women were not accepted in the science and technology fields,” she said.

In her down time, Tromble loves camping, getting out in nature and traveling.
