Nowadays, Morris spends her time supporting Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services thousands of analysts as Managing Director, Global Head of Ratings Operations. She draws on her military background every day as she leads her teams of dozens of people around the globe as they service all aspects of operations for S&P.

“When you do operations and product management, it’s very much about the team and for me in the army that was one of the ways you work.  That was the way you got your job done, that’s the way you accomplish your mission – team work,” she said.

This focus on her team and getting the job done has propelled Morris’ career forward in the 10 years she has been with the company.

When the West Point graduate is not at work, she spends her time focusing on her other passions: her two young girls and also being a runner. Watch the video to learn about what Morris calls “Tina Time.”

She spoke with Emily Fredrix Goodman, manager of corporate communications and social media at McGraw Hill Financial, about her transition to Standard & Poor’s and what people considering major transitions should consider.
