Upon her graduation from USCGA in May 1998, CDR Fleischmann was assigned to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Elm where she served two tours: as a Deck Watch Officer and Assistant Navigator from May 1998 to March 2000 and as the Operations Officer from March 2000 to June 2001.  

From 2001 to 2003, CDR Fleischmann was a member of the Facilities Engineering Branch at the USCGA. During this tour, she served as both the Safety Officer and the Construction Officer. In this latter capacity, she was the Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative (COTR) as well as Civil Engineering Project Manager for the Academy’s $5.2 million dollar construction program including all aspects of the construction process: cost estimation, general scopes of work, management of change orders and contractor evaluations.  

In December 2004, CDR Fleischmann joined the USCGA faculty as an Instructor. During her time at the Academy, she has been an assistant coach on the men’s and women’s swim teams. In August 2009, CDR Fleischmann became a member of the PCTS and currently is working towards her Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering at University of Connecticut.
