As part of our effort to bring you the important information from across the Fleet, @USNavy will be retweeting several attendees, including LCDR Golding (@micaelagolding). LCDR Golding is part of the Junior Officer Panel this week at SNA and is the lead action officer for the Ballistic Missile Defense Policy.

LCDR Micaela Golding was born in Kingston, Jamaica and was raised Portsmouth, R.I.  She received an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy where she graduated and received her commission as a Surface Warfare Officer in 2000.

Her first assignment was aboard USS ESSEX (LHD 2) where she served as Electronic Warfare Officer and Operations Training Officer. LCDR Golding’s second Division Officer tour was in USS BENFOLD (DDG 65) as Combat Information Center Officer.  Her next assignment was Flag Aide to Commander, Expeditionary Strike Group ONE and, when the command redeployed to conduct a humanitarian assistance mission, she served as Flag Aide to Commander, Disaster Assistance Command-Pakistan.

In September 2008, LCDR Golding reported to USS HIGGINS (DDG 76) where she served as Operations Officer.
