Military Career

I am a military veteran, and come from a long line of family military service. Our oldest son is currently serving as a senior NCO and our 2nd oldest is a veteran. 


During my enlistment, I served in various roles including serving as a leader with a Combat Brigade Team, and Rapid Deployment Force.

Among the most powerful lessons learned from serving in the military, was maintaining a tenacious spirit, leadership, teamwork, political skills and never surrender attitude.​
