After high school, I enlisted in the Marine Corps in 2002 and was stationed in Camp Pendleton, CA. I served 4 years of active duty and during that time, I went on 2 combat tours to Iraq as an Infantryman. After active duty, I came back to my hometown in Sioux Falls where family and friends are. I've always felt comfortable at home and decided that my future is here. I joined the Army Reserve in 2010 and have been serving since.
I've been in the customer service and banking industry for over 12 years where I learned and still continue to refine my service skills. I've learned through the years that customer satisfaction shouldn't be a goal. Creating raving fans is what we should be striving for on every customer interaction we have. Being in the Mortgage industry and having over 12 years of Military experience has given me a purpose. As a Veteran Advocate, I aim to do my best not only to help my fellow Veterans take advantage of the benefit they've earned, but also to help protect them.
I'm a proud dad to a little boy who keeps me on my toes. Since he was born, he has been and always will be my top priority. I enjoy every moment spending time with him and he'd never grow up. He loves going to the park and being my bowling buddy.
