I was an Information Dominance Warfare Officer and Intelligence Officer in the US Navy Reserve from 2009 – 2014. I supported the US Navy’s 7th Fleet (Pacific Ocean) with intelligence analysis on relevant threats and led intelligence specialist sailors in my unit. Prior to that, I spent time in the Air Force from 2002 – 2005.
In 2013, I was deployed to Naval Central Forces, Manama, Bahrain to serve as the Analysis Production Chief in the N2 (Intelligence) section of the command, as well as the hand-selected liaison officer to represent the three-star admiral to US Central Command’s Forward Element-Jordan. Additionally, I was tasked with training more than 20 sailors in intelligence analysis and Intelligence Community standard writing practices.
I was also a certified Navy Command Fitness Leader, having led hundreds of sailors in physical training, physical training tests, nutrition, and weight loss.
In 2003, I earned the Basic Parachutist Badge from the US Air Force Academy Freefall Program.
I separated from the US Navy with the Information Dominance Warfare Badge, Basic Parachutist Badge, Joint Service Achievement Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, Overseas Global War on Terrorism Medal, Domestic Global War on Terrorism Medal, National Defense Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Expert Rifle Ribbon, and Expert Pistol Ribbon.
