Kelly Dechaine

Business Analyst

What attracted you to Marick?

I had worked with them on a few things at the FAA and was impressed by their knowledge, quick response time, and kind manner.


I earned a B.S. in Aeronautics majoring in Flight Education from the University of North Dakota (Go Sioux!) and then spent 6 years instructing at an airline. During this time, I worked with a team building and distributing eLearning courses with Learning Management Systems (Plateau and Pathlore). Recently, I have worked for the FAA as a contractor on various SuccessFactors projects.
