Brooke Owens Fellow, Class of 2019
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Spaceflight Operations, '19
Host Institution: Bryce Space and Technology
Jaclyn Wiley is a senior at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University majoring in Spaceflight Operations with a specialization in Space Policy and Operations. She is minoring in Aerospace Life Sciences, Business Administration, Human Factors Psychology, International Relations and Occupational Safety. Her passion for space was ignited as a child, when she would run out to her front yard and watch launches from Kennedy Space Center climb over the Florida sky.
Jaclyn was able to explore different aspects of her passion for space during her three NASA internships, with the Hubble Space Telescope Project Group, the Commercial Spaceflight Development Division, and the Commercial Crew Program. While at NASA, Jaclyn supported ground and mission operations, program control and integration, and scientific communications efforts.
Jaclyn has also led multiple research projects, two of which she presented at the 68th and 69th International Astronautical Congresses. Her research has ranged in topic from the manufacture of fragile payloads on orbital platforms to novel ways to increase the efficiency of post-consumer on-orbit assets.
While a student at Embry-Riddle, Jaclyn served the student body as the Editor-in-Chief of the Embry-Riddle Avion Newspaper and as a member of the Student Government Association Executive Board. Further, she is a Digital Literacies Tutor at the Embry-Riddle Digital Studio, teaching students how to communicate more effectively via digital means, like videos, audio recordings, and slide presentations. She has also used her extensive video editing and media production experience to hold multiple content creation and editing positions.
As a Brooke Owens Fellow, Jaclyn will be supporting Bryce Space and Technology in Washington DC.
