From 1981 to 2017, Ms. Klein served in the United States Navy and held the rank of Rear Admiral at the time of her retirement. As Rear Admiral Klein, she served as the Secretary of Defense’s Advisor for Military Professionalism. She served as Chief of Staff for U.S. Cyber Command and in 2008 served as Director of Operations for the Navy’s Network Warfare Command.
