Well basically I like to joke that I really have no idea how I ended up where I am today. BUT that being said, I have no complaints at all!
After serving 7 years in the US Army, I left with the hopes of finding a decent job and starting a fresh new life with my husband, also a vet, and 4 children in our home state of Florida.
I am a Veteran of the U.S. Navy, proudly serving 3 years. Upon my discharge, I decided to go to school to pursue my Nursing Degree. I graduated with a BA in Healthcare Administration from Ashford University.
I left the United States Army after serving on active duty for almost 8 years. I started working for a civilian company and felt very lost after being so proud to wear the uniform and serve my country.
I have over 32 years of military service between the US Marine Corps and the Army National Guard. Since employed with the Social Security Administration (SSA), I have deployed twice to Afghanistan (2006 and 2010) with my Army National Guard unit.

I left home at the age of 19 with no direction in life. Enlisting in the United States Navy (February 2001) in Massachusetts, I ended up being stationed in Gulfport MS with Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 7 (Seabees).
