Cool Skeens

By Airman 1st Class Joshua R. M. Dewberry 11th Wing Public Affairs

Senior Airman Lauren Skeens, 11th Logistics Readiness Squadron vehicle management and analysis apprentice, has been recognized as Warrior of the Week here, April 30. She provides logistics service to many Team Andrews units, as well as Air Force One, the National Airborne Ops Center and the Pentagon.

Skeens has been recognized for her hard work and dedication while working the vehicle management control board (vehicle maintenance database that tracks maintenance for the entire base fleet). Recently, the control board was moved to customer service in order to increase customer efficiencies.

Before the move, it could take up to a full day to complete.

Skeens was able get her work station back on-line in four hours and limit customer downtime. Notably, she did this with minimal help and right after returning from performing Civil Engineer escort duties for the previous 90 days.

She initiates vehicle maintenance job orders, monitors shop workflow and schedules work commensurate with the wing mission priorities.

In her downtime, she likes to write, ride motorcycles, and shoot at the range. She is currently working toward her CCAF degree.

The Charleston, S. C., native joined the Air Force in February, 2009, to pursue education and travel opportunities, as well as continuing her family's tradition of serving.
