In this adventure we call life, I have had the opportunity to serve in the United States Navy for 13 years. I began my enlistment working for the base newspaper on board Naval Air Station Pensacola. I then became a Hospital Corpsman, and worked at Naval Medical Center, San Diego and U.S. Naval Hospital Rota, Spain.
After my tour in Spain, I made the decision to pursue my graduate degree - which I earned in Public Relations and Advertising from DePaul University in 2018. I earned a commission in the U.S. Navy in 2019 as a Surface Warfare Officer. I now serve as the Assistant Weapons Officer and Command Public Affairs Officer onboard USS Porter (DDG 78).
