What’s a challenge you’ve faced and how did you get through it?
When I separated from the military I, like many veterans, struggled to sort out what a civilian career could look like for me. This was incredibly difficult initially because I was in the aerospace control field, which was very specialized and also very different from most civilian careers. I chose to leverage all the skills I learned in the military — networking, collaboration and leadership — to make connections that ultimately landed me in the staffing field nearly 20 years ago.
