Margaret A. Klee, Software Engineer at Leidos Innovations, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in software engineering.
A native of Boston, MA, Ms. Klee was born to parents James Butt Klee and Lucille Janet (Holljes) Klee in February 1961. At the age of 21, she graduated from Bard College at Simon’s Rock with a Bachelor of Arts in 1982. Subsequent to obtaining her undergraduate degree, she attended a job fair, where she was hired by Goodyear Atomic Corporation as a programmer, a position she held for two years. Ascending the ranks, she soon became a software engineer with the corporation from 1984 to 1985 before being employed in the same capacity for General Dynamics Corporation until 1987. For the following four years, she served as a senior software engineer for General Dynamics. Soon thereafter, Ms. Klee served Lockheed Martin Corporation as a software engineer for 15 fruitful years before settling into her current position with Leidos Innovations.
While employed with the prestigious engineering firms, Ms. Klee pursued higher education at the University of Houston-Clear Lake, where she received a Master of Science in 1994, and Rice University Jones Graduate School of Management, where she obtained a Master of Business Administration in 2001. While serving Lockheed Martin, she was responsible for leading a team that was integral to the development of two facilities located on the International Space Station. For her diligence in the field, she was honored with the Silver Snoopy Award from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1999, which she cites as a career highlight. An award that is only given to 1 percent of the population, Ms. Klee believes she was nominated by an astronaut, which has made the award even more meaningful.
Ms. Klee has maintained affiliation with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Computer Society throughout her career. Alongside her primary endeavors, she owns a hand analysis business called the Institute of Hand Analysis, where her main focus is on fingerprints and the information fingerprints can provide about an individual. In addition, she spends her spare time making beautiful jewelry, which she sells on her own webpage called Gem Sense.
Looking toward the future, Ms. Klee intends to continue experiencing the growth and success of her career. Impressively, she has been listed in the 15th and 16th editions of Who’s Who of American Women.
