MSG Owens is an active duty leader who has successfully served in all leadership positions from Squad Leader through Company First Sergeant. MSG Owens, was identified by senior leaders early in her career for her professionalism/unique problem solving abilities. As a result she was placed in positions of leadership and project management far beyond her grade. She served as acting 1SG when she was a Staff Sergeant. She was responsible for coordinating interactions with congressional aides, senate staff, and the Mayors of two municipalities simultaneously. After successfully serving in these positions she requested to be reassigned so she could work with Soldiers. She is a servant leader with high standards, impeccable integrity and a sincere desire to help others. I would fight any fight under any condition with her by my side.     This footer written by CSM (R) Gerecht because MSG Owens’ is far too humble!
