Recent Activity  -


Enlisted as a Human Resources Specialist and reclassification to a Paralegal Specialist, I have served in the Active Army, Army Reserves, and now the Active Guard Reserve. I never had the intent of making a career out of the Army and never thought possible achieving the rank of Master Sergeant. I love sharing experiences and developing leadership skills in others while developing my own skills.
