Courtney O'Connor is a Communications Strategist for Digital Communications at NASA headquarters in Washington, D.C. In this role, she helps strategically plan and share what’s new in space exploration (and why it matters) for the flagship social media accounts, which have a reach of over 120 million people. She has more than a decade of experience in digital communications at NASA, including time spent as part of the “hive mind” behind the award-winning @MarsCuriosity campaign. The projects she currently supports span the solar system and beyond, but she’s particularly passionate about her role in communicating humanity’s return to the Moon with the Artemis program.
