Our veterans and first responders face a unique set of challenges both while on duty and after retirement. It takes someone who understands the lifestyle to truly understand the challenges you face. I retired from the U.S. Marine Corps where I served in Force Recon, Interrogation and Counter Intelligence. I also served as a police officer and held a senior position at the Defense intelligence Agency. I loved my career in these fields. I had a lot of fun but also experienced many challenges and had to overcome obstacles. Sometimes after trying some old “tried and true” methods that really did not work, I eventually was able to overcome obstacles and succeed.
I can help you navigate obstacles in your career and find the success that is in you.

Career Coaching I wish I had a nickel for every service member who got bad career advice whether from a recruiter desperate to make his numbers or from relying on unverified information to move into their next advancement. I can give you the knowledge and the tools needed for you to be confident that you are making the right career move.
PTSD If you’ve been to combat or in a firefight, you most likely have PTSD. Unfortunately, the culture of the military or first responder communities too often look at PTSD as a weakness that needs to be denied or hidden.
