When it’s right, it’s right.
Thanks to the DOD’s SkillBridge Program, Dynepic has had the opportunity to not only work with some of the most highly skilled talent but also help military veterans transition to civilian life through internships and workplace camaraderie. In the case of Kelsey Sumner, we knew it was the right fit from the very start.
“My SkillBridge internship with Dynepic was incredible! I was given the chance to float between departments and learn more not just about the company’s vision and processes, but also how to translate my military experience/skills to a corporate setting”, Kelsey shared. “Everyone at Dynepic was so patient with my questions, took the time to share their vast expertise, and seemed genuinely passionate about their roles. When presented with the offer to stay on full-time, it was an easy decision to stay with such an amazing team!”
With a decade of service as a Logistics Readiness Officer in the United States Air Force (USAF), Kelsey honed her leadership skills working with Airmen on everything from supply chain and transportation management to vehicle and aircraft maintenance. Now a Product Manager II at Dynepic, Kelsey’s attention to detail, critical thinking, and calm stewardship skills are helping support the company in its next evolution.
“Right now, I’m really excited about a project I’m working on that's defining requirements for the new user onboarding process,” Kelsey shared. “It’s a giant puzzle involving quite a few teams. I’m really enjoying the challenge of workshopping with the teams to understand their pieces of the puzzle and how they fit together, then presenting their ideas to help support decision-making.”
Kelsey’s personal interests also include puzzles (the jigsaw kind) and other challenges such as finding the best nature walk trails, restaurants, and coffee shops and experimenting with keeping succulents growing. Her favorite adventure buddies are of course her husband, Kip, and their sweet pup, Nani.
We’re thrilled you’re part of our team, Kelsey, and look forward to your future at Dynepic!
