As a spotlight performer, individuals are chosen by leadership for demonstrating the Air Force's Core Values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.

Airman 1st Class Annalou Cumpio, 22nd Comptroller Squadron customer service technician, received the spotlight performer for the week of Oct. 31- Nov. 4.

Cumpio assists customers with any travel and military pay questions and computes separation and retirement payments. She manages the wing LeaveWeb program in which she reconciles outstanding transactions, trains program representatives and preserves the leave balances for over 4,000 members. Cumpio is also the lead defense travel administrator for the wing with the responsibility of reviewing over 200 pay records monthly for returned deployers.

“Anna brightens up the office with the positive energy and attitude she brings to work every day,” said 1st Lt. Tom McKee, 22nd CPTS Financial Services flight commander.

Cumpio, a Warren, Michigan native, joined the Air Force in February 2015 and arrived at McConnell in August 2015. Her hobbies include playing acoustic guitar, going for walks, playing video games and tennis.

Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My parents both are positive influences in my life. They have made sacrifices for my siblings and I to have a better life and they have provided us with values that we live by. I want to do the same for my future children.

If you could give advice to a new Airman, what would it be and why?
My advice to new Airmen would be to get out of their comfort zone and ask a lot of questions. Learn as much as you can because one day, there will be new Airmen who will look up to you for some help.

What is one goal that you have already accomplished, or would like to accomplish, during your Air Force career?
My goal that I would like to accomplish while I’m in the Air Force is to get my degree in chemical engineering.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
The most interesting place I have traveled to would be Chicago, Illinois. I love museums and aquariums, which Chicago has, and they are the best ones I have been to so far.

If you had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would like to meet Neil DeGrasse Tyson to learn more about the cosmos. There are so many things we still need to discover and I would like to know what he is currently working towards.
