Rank/Name: Master Sgt. Holly Knox

Unit: 445th Operations Support Squadron

Duty Title: Aviation resource management craftsman

Hometown: Colorado Springs, Colorado

Civilian Job: 445th OSS operations technician (Air Reserve Technician)

Education: Bachelor of Science in Public Health from American Military University

Hobbies: I enjoy reading, gardening, running and going to the gym.

Career Goal: I plan on doing 20 years on the military side and continuing to work in Current Operations as a civilian for as long as it suits me. I will also keep my eyes open for potential jobs within the public health field and potentially pursue a second career.

What do you like about working at the 445th? I love my job and the people I work with. It is a much-needed change of pace from what I did for the first nine years of my career.

Why did you join the Air Force? I never had any plans on going to college, and I did not want to continue living with my parents working small jobs. So, I sat down with a local recruiter and signed up. I left two weeks after graduation.
