Annotation: 

This interview with Mary Ann Elliott reveals that she began her professional career after her husband's death left her with three young children to support.  She worked for telecommunications companies - including Motorola, Comsat, and Intelsat - for two decades before founding Arrowhead Space & Telecommunications in 1991.  The company's name is an acknowledgment of her Tuscarora and Lumbee ancestry.  The company's rapid growth began around 1993; it was invited by AT&T to work with them on a large government contract.  As of this interview, about 60% of the company's work was government related, much of it in defense.
