What Branch of Service are you or were you in and for how long?: I was in the U.S. Army for 8 years.
What is or was your job in the military?: I was a logistics sergeant.
Why do you feel it’s important for people to know your business is a Veteran Owned business?: This is important, because of the connection that veterans share with each other and the skills I obtained throughout my service that allows me to provide a selfless brand of leadership that inspires hard work and loyalty.
When leaving the service what was your biggest struggle?: My biggest struggle was acclimating to the civilian way of thinking. In the military you are trained not to show your emotion, so that was a difficult part for me to overcome in connecting with others.
What resources for veterans did you find that helped you overcome that struggle?: Therapy. In talking to a therapist I was able to work through my communication and find ways that I could connect with others, while also maintaining my military experiences.
