DVIDS – News – Civilian Army Professional Climbs Trainee Rank at SES


JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas – Sherene Dorazio has always wanted to work for the US Army Installation Management Command.

She realized this dream when she was hired as Deputy Director of Facilities and Logistics IMCOM G4 in December 2019.

Three years later, Dorazio left IMCOM for a position as Deputy Executive Director for Construction and Facilities Management at the Department of Veterans Affairs and a greater appreciation for her role in IMCOM.

“This job helped me train,” Dorazio said. “It’s a huge, complex mission with a large group of people who really care about it and are doing great things for the military. I really enjoy my time and experience here with the staff.”

As Deputy Director of G4, Dorazio was responsible for managing headquarters personnel support and overseeing public works and logistics operations for IMCOM’s 75 garrisons worldwide. She was also a key adviser to current G4 director William Kidd, who has praised her contributions to the business.

“She’s just a great leader who always put soldiers and families first during her time at IMCOM,” said Kidd, who assumed leadership of the G4 in 2022. “Her expertise and insight have been invaluable to our mission, and she will be missed.”

Dorazio began her federal public service career as a GS-1 summer intern with NASA when she was in high school. While enrolled at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, she joined the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a GS-3 student. From there, she became a co-op student and intern at the Department of the Army before joining the Army as a civil engineer after graduating from Alabama-Huntsville in 2001.
She had stops ranging from USACE, US Army Engineering and Support Center, and US Army Medical Command before joining IMCOM.

“That’s part of being a complete engineer in the military,” Dorazio said. “In the G4, it’s not just engineering. There is plenty of housing, logistics and care for soldiers and families. At IMCOM, everything you do affects soldiers and their families. There is a huge human aspect in what we do.

Dorazio discovered that joining IMCOM’s G4 had more demands than resources. She cites the hiring of more staff in G4 to alleviate the huge workload and the facility investment plan as major achievements.

“We can’t meet all the building and renovation requirements, so how can we look to get the right things? said Dorazio. “The plan helps us prioritize our projects.

Dorazio plans to take the climate and energy installation and water resilience strategies she helped oversee during her time at the G4 to her new role with the VA and, more importantly, the focus on soldiers and their families.

“We house them and they live there,” Dorazio said. “I’m going to take that and everything I’ve learned with public affairs and congressional oversight and apply that with VA because we care about vet health and benefits. This skill set will translate.
