Recent Activity  -


I Served 4 years as a Naval Aircrewman. I loved my job and the brotherhood I was a part of! Since being out I have struggled to find something that I am passionate about like being an Aircrewman. I am now a Veteran/ Partner solutions advisor. This has allowed me to again pursue something that is much bigger than myself while helping veterans make the transition into high salary IT careers!

This training demanded higher levels of physical fitness and swimming proficiency to prepare me for life saving open ocean rescue operations. I learned to jump from helicopters to rescue survivors from hazardous waters, disentangle survivors from parachutes and use a variety of hoisting devices. I also received extensive first aid training in providing care for rescued personal during helicopter transport. This was the most difficult task I have ever achieved. Graduating Aviation Rescue Swimmer School was the proudest moment of my career.
