I have always wanted to be a business owner doing something that helps others, builds community, and makes the world a better place.
I graduated from the University of Central MO in 2005 with a professional pilot degree and multiple FAA pilot ratings. Commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps in 2006, eventually piloted the F/A-18 Hornet. Changed careers in 2011 and became a Logistics Officer. Held several roles in operations management and procurement. Transitioned out of the Marine Corps in 2017 at the rank of Major and completed an MBA from Auburn University. Began a business career with a global mining machinery manufacturer in operations management. Ended up in global supply chain development role. Finally pursuing my dream of being a business owner.
