What was your role in the military?
I served in the Air Force for 12 years. During that time, I had three separate career fields; Aerospace Propulsion Mechanic focusing on jet engines; Engineering Assistant working in construction; and a Paralegal for contracting work.

How did your experience inform your perspective in the private sector?
Military training equips you to adapt to any situation. It also teaches you how to work as a team for a common goal, with people from all walks of life. I really believe structure and timeliness is a byproduct of being in the military.

What made you choose to join Govini?
I chose Govini because of the culture that ensures the team has the freedom to be who we are. Like when I was in the military, company leadership truly cares about your wellbeing, and that is very important to me.
