I come from a big family: I sometimes joke that I joined the Navy because my eight older siblings had already taken all the other jobs. But the real reason is that my parents were both Marines, and I wanted to follow in their footsteps—to be close to the mission and give back.
After two decades in the Navy and throughout my professional career, that sense of mission continues to drive me. The mission extends well beyond the contract—to our way of life as a nation, our national security, even our healthcare. In my government relations role, we’re forming strong relationships across the Federal Government, so our nation’s leaders understand what we deliver, what makes us unique, and why we’re critical to the mission.
