Tell us your brief life story?
I was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina and grew up abroad following my father's Army career with stops in Germany, Arizona, Hawaii, and back to Fayetteville again. After high school I attended Howard University in Washington, District of Columbia. My first and only job prior to joining the military was as a student intern at the U.S. Senate. I left college after my junior year to enlist in the Air Force.

Tell us about your military career?
I joined the Air Force because I wanted to grow professionally, finish my education, and serve in an environment that best fit my growth potential. I've held three Air Force Specialty Codes in my career: Information Management, Communication-Computers Systems Operations, and now Contracting. Contracting has been an enlightening career field because I get a snapshot of how acquisition resources help satisfy mission expectations across the Air Force. My most memorable professional military experience was attending the Non-Commissioned Officer Academy.

What is your favorite Air Force or military memory or story?
My favorite Air Force memory is deploying to Al Dhafra. It helped me define why I serve and understand that people are the most important part of the military.  

What are you passionate about?
I'm passionate about my family, hiking, reading, and photography.
