What was your role in the military?
I served in the Active Duty Army as a 14A Air Defense Artillery Officer. For the first half of my career, I was a Patriot tactical control officer at Fort Liberty / United Arab Emirates before becoming an Executive Officer and the Assistant S-3 for a Patriot Battery / Battalion in Osan, South Korea.
How did your experience inform your perspective in the private sector?
My time in the military definitely gave me a better appreciation for the freedoms that we have in the U.S. that are often taken for granted. After leaving active duty, I wanted to continue to contribute towards public service. I ended up working for a management consulting company, providing strategy and analytical services for both the U.S. Air Force and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
What made you choose to join Govini?
I believe that Govini can truly help the U.S. Government identify and understand risks within their supply chains that could jeopardize national security.
