Big Life Wins:

My most recent win came during our deployment to eastern Europe in response to the Russian invasion. My unit was one of the first units on ground and it was my job to plan and execute training for the Battalion. We had 30 days to get roughly 600 people qualified on their weapon. This was a huge push, but at the end of 30 days, everyone qualified.

Post MBA Goal:

Post-MBA, I desire to go back into Management Consulting and specialize in Project Management. During my time in the service, I discovered both my ability and desire for building relationships, creating and fixing systems, and leveraging whatever resources we had to achieve mission success. Now, I simply want to help those in the civilian sector.
