Two distinct leadership traits – passion and humility – have enabled me to overcome many challenges, progress quickly through the enlisted ranks and be placed in positions of greater responsibility than my peers. Passion to stay committed to my people, our mission and our great nation despite adversity, and humility to seek the input and talents of others in order to complete tasks as efficiently as possible. Leadership includes a dedication to our people and meeting them where they are. When we take the time to invest in those around us, our teams are much more effective and have the ability to achieve extraordinary objectives. My style of leadership begins with sacrifice and ends with service.
