Katie Guhl attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biomechanics with a Minor in Mathematics while also being a Division 1 soccer player. Ms. Guhl is currently a Human Systems Integrator for KBR working on the Human Health and Performance Contract (HHPC) at the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) supporting the Artemis and Gateway Chief Health and Performance Officers (CHPOs). In this technical role, she supports the consistency and compatibility of human system requirements across all Artemis vehicles and Programs and seeks solutions to gaps and risks. She also works with the Anthropometry and Biomechanics Facility (ABF) team on various projects. She is currently continuing her education at Texas A&M University where she is pursuing a Master of Science in Engineering Management with a concentration in Systems Engineering. Ms. Guhl had the pleasure of attending the 2022 NCAC-SGW and is very excited about the opportunity to attend another SGAC event.

I learned so much from the first SGAC event that I attended, and I’m very honored to receive the NASA Exploration Scholarship to attend the 2023 SGC and IAC. I can’t be more excited about the opportunity to continue learning about the space industry while sharing NASA’s plans to return humans to the Moon!
