Noteworthy: Froehlich assumed command of the Air Force Reserve's 911th Airlift Wing Civil Engineering Squadron in Moon in December. As commander, she oversees the readiness of about 90 airmen who are responsible for airfield and base maintenance in deployment locations.

Age: 32

Residence: State College

Family: Husband, Bob, and daughter, Dakota, 1.

Occupation: Civil engineer at Stahl Sheaffer Engineering LLC in State College

Background: Originally from Houston in Washington County, Froehlich was a member of the Air Force ROTC while enrolled at Penn State. After she graduated in 2004, she was on active duty and stationed at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota for two years. Then she left the military, and worked for a civil engineering firm in Tarentum until 2007. In 2009, she joined the Air Force Reserve.

Education: Bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Penn State in 2004.

Quote: The most rewarding part of Froehlich's job is “just being able to see the efforts be demonstrated when we're able to deploy and complete our missions overseas. We do a lot of training and work here and don't always get to show that off until we get a chance to actually deploy.”
