Title: Queens Company Commander

1. What do you love about your job and why?
I love being in the Army for many reasons. I first received an outstanding education at the United States Military Academy. I then learned how to fly helicopters and flew all over the United States and in Iraq. I have been able to help better the lives of the soldiers under my command. I am now able to change the lives of many young individuals seeking to better their situation by joining the Army.

2. What are your business goals over the next five years?
For the next two years I want to publicize the excellent opportunities the Army has to offer to an even greater number of people in the Queens and Long Island areas. I want to partner with more schools to help students meet their goals even outside of the Army. I also want to partner with local businesses to bring in experienced employees once they decide to separate from the Army.

3. How do you give back to the community?
Most importantly I work with area high schools to show programs we offer that can better their students’ test scores. We also offer guidance to all types of individuals on how to best fulfill their goals, whether in the Armed Services or as a civilian. Each time you better the life of an individual, the impact can be felt throughout the community.
