Alina Haynes joined Highlight in June 2015 and is currently the Team Lead for the Acquisition and Program Support team at DTRA. She builds service (labor), hardware, software, and maintenance procurement packages and is heavily involved in both the pre-award contracting process and post award activities.
Originally adopted from Russia, Alina has spent the past 10 years in Northern Virginia. She is an avid runner and is currently training for the Marine Corps marathon, actively working towards completing a marathon in under 4 hours. She is a mom, an athlete, a leader, a musician, and a “pretty good cook,” who strives to show her kids “that you don’t have to have one goal.” Her diversified interests took root as a kid when she wanted to be the first person on Mars.
While at Highlight, Alina “has been able to grow. With a motivated customer who always pushes me to achieve more and a company that supports personal development I have been able to expand my knowledge in acquisition.”
