Military Experiences

Jan 2011 - Jun 2012
Staff Officer
-Consolidated inputs from CRUDES Commanding Officers for Pre-INSURV briefs delivered to RADM Dave Thomas. Worked with executive leadership on the Norfolk, VA and Mayport, FL waterfront to ensure timely, accurate information flowed to key decision makers. -Supported the emergent correction of mission-limiting casualties to engineering, sensors, and electronics systems by bridging the gap between disparate military supply chains and ships operating within a 72 hour deployment window; in some cases this involved driving to Jacksonville, FL and back overnight to drop off parts that could not have reached the ship in time to affect their mission readiness. In other cases this involved reaching out to supply entities and becoming a vocal advocate for immediate action.
