I bring energy and energize! I am committed to lifelong learning and always improving myself and others. I am excited to share my experiences in order to show that education CAN BE fun and that it can open many doors for you in life.... it's just all about perspective!
I attended the United States Naval Academy and was a linebacker for the football team from 2011-2015. I earned my Bachelors of Science in History. The Naval Academy challenged me in ways I did not know where possible. I was tested every single day mentally, morally, and physically. The Naval Academy is an Engineering school and all students are required to take dozens of credits of technical STEM courses to include thermodynamics, electrical engineering, cyber security, physics, chemistry, calculus, and computer systems engineering. Not only was I pushed academically but I was pushed as a leader. You are expected to develop your own leadership style and practice it every day. I held numerous instructor and leadership positions while at the Naval Academy and found my love for teaching.
Upon graduation I commissioned into the United States Marine Corps my job as a Financial Manager. My passion for finance was sparked once I began my work as a financial manager. I applied for grad school and began my MBA with a concentration in finance shortly after from LSUS. It was at this point that I knew that I wanted to make finance a career. I currently hold the Certified Financial Planner, Chartered Financial Consultant and Retirement Income Certified Professional Designations. I also have great experience preparing others for the SIE, Series 65, and Life, Health, and Accident Insurance Examinations.
I am excited to get to know you and your goals and desires!
