At Norfolk Southern, Carter had to overcome the challenge of working in an industry that has been dominated for years by men.

She responded by treating everyone with respect, learning new things, and doing tasks that others try to avoid, in the process earning the respect of her friends and colleagues.

As a track supervisor, Carter supervises 25 union-contracted employees and lead maintenance projects worth more than $500,000.

Carter was a Faculty Adviser for Envision Experience where she administered sixth- and seventh-grade STEM/leadership development curriculum, and is an active member of the National Society of Black Engineers.
