What Is Your Why (Why Do You Do What You Do)?

To push myself to be the best version of myself because my kids are watching.

How did you get started in your field or work?

I was hand selected by my prior service recruiter.

What’s one thing we should know that makes you or your company unique?

One thing that makes me unique is that I enjoy learning and am constantly seeking out new learning opportunities.

How can veterans utilize the services offered at your agency?

As a prior service recruiter for the Navy Reserve, my main priority is to make veterans aware of all the benefits the Reserve offers them. Based on someone’s needs I would explain the benefit that would pertain to them. For example, the ability to have affordable healthcare for a family of 4. The Navy Reserve offers Tricare Reserve Select at $239/month allowing for everyone to include the service member to go to an in network doctor out in town.
