Calli Jenkerson moved to Sioux Falls in the late 1990s to accept her dream job doing science at the USGS EROS Center. Her career evolved as she learned more and more about how valuable satellite data imagery is to the user community studying our changing planet and grew into roles coordinating project teams that integrate the science and engineering required to meet those needs. As a passionate and conscientious leader, Calli enjoys every minute working as the contract lead for the EROS Science Division. Armed with a 2019 PMP certification, she strives to empower her teams so they can deliver reliable, cutting edge science to the global community.
Her days are otherwise filled spending time with her husband Thomas, and their children Anna, Lucy, Brandon, Ellie, and Sadie. She is excited to serve the Sioux Empire PMI Chapter board and looks forward to sharing project experiences across the variety of industries supporting our community.
