Deborah Hersman, sworn in last month as a member of the NTSB, has minimal aviation experience compared with the extensive background of John Goglia, the Safety Board member she replaced (see page 74). For the last five years and before joining
the NTSB, Hersman was a senior staff member of the Senate commerce, science and transportation committee, where she was responsible for legislative agenda and policy initiatives on surface transportation. Hersman has a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master’s degree in conflict analysis and resolution.
