WHAT WAS ONE OF YOUR PROUDEST PROFESSIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS?
I would have to say I am proudest that I have maintained positions where I can help others. My Air Force Career working in orderly rooms, IT, as well as my civilian endeavors, have been in service to those I served with. Assisting them with navigating everything from joyous, to complicated and occasionally unpleasant moments in their lives. I have always done my very best to assist and support whenever the opportunity presented itself, making every effort never to use the words “that’s not my job”.
