“I chose my career after exiting the United States Army because I wanted to help those who could not help themselves. I knew at an early age I wanted to assist others and protect them from those who would take advantage of and threaten others (protect and serve). My philosophy is to “Always strive to maintain a posture of ‘Respect, Professionalism and Excellence’ in all of my professional and personal endeavors.”
