I am a United States Navy veteran. My main responsibilities were to find, track , and report non-friendly submarines using both passive and active sonar. I was responsible for the safety of multi-million dollar equipment. My duties started with conducting pre-mission planning to ensure the most efficient and successful deployment possible followed by my post mission briefing to go over any mistakes that were made by my crew or our upper chain of command so that we can learn and move forward knowing that we will not repeat those wrongs. My leadership and communication skills assisted me in leading many different sailor both younger and older than me and from all over the country. I used those skills and knowledge to help motivate my sailors, and teach them how to do their job in a way that they personally could understand. I was able to carry forward everything I learned in the military, and use it in the civilian world.
Following my time in the service, I rejoined Temple University to gain my degree in Management Information Systems. In the Spring of 2019, I was lucky enough to gain a job opportunity with Comcast as a Program Manager within their Security Integration and Engineering Division. I was responsible for managing projects that involved disabling and converting firewall policies , deploying new Firewall Hardware to different locations across the country. All while managing these several projects, I was also monitoring the company wide proxies to ensure the security of Comcast and our customers infrastructure.
