As a steward of government funds, she led a cooperative research and development agreement for an aircraft multi-mode receiver. Her efforts ensured a successful ground and flight demonstration, increased the technology readiness level of the system and saved the government more than $400,000.

Continuously striving for more knowledge, Moriarty completed Squadron Officer School by correspondence in 50 percent of the allotted time and amassed 361 training hours at two other classes, culminating in her Level II PM certification.

She is also involved with the base and local community and never shies away from helping others. This year she founded the Hanscom Federal Credit Union Generation-Y advisory committee, recruited 23 members and provided feedback facilitating positive change within the community. Moriarty also volunteered 30 hours for Rocket Live Launch and Starbase science, technology, engineering and mathematics events, captivating 200 middle schoolers.
