“I’m lucky to have found the camaraderie and support I cherish in a civilian role”
Previous military experience: U.S. Navy, Surface Warfare Officer (SWO)
Currently Mobilized to Command Task Force 51 in Bahrain as Staff Officer and Battle Watch Captain
"When I decided to leave the Navy, I was naturally worried about joining the business world. Would there be that feeling of teamwork and camaraderie, like I experienced as an SWO? After five years with Procter and Gamble, I have been blown away. The caliber of people I work with and the management above me has been nothing short of exceptional. Managers not only provide clear direction, but there is an abundance of training and processes in place. Additionally, there is a wealth of people who are willing to mentor and help in your career development. I am writing this in Bahrain where I am a deployed Naval Reservist serving with Command Task Force 51. The support I have and continue to receive has been overwhelming. This time away from my family is hard but with the support of friends, family, and knowing the type of company I have to work for when I return – I truly feel blessed."
