Bio 

After a 20 year career in the US Army and 14+ years of high-performance recruiting i have passion for helping fellow veterans achieve their goals by connecting military technicians, NCOs & Officers with quality civilian employers who value the training, discipline and demonstrated leadership experience that military service men and women bring to the workplace. As a Senior Partner for Lucas Group’s Military Transition Division in Atlanta, I specialize in recruiting services for military experienced Engineers, Supervisors, Managers and Technicians by successfully assisting them in making the transition from military service to civilian jobs.
