After spending 8 years in the United States Army, I transitioned into the police force where I worked as a patrol officer, a member of the Crime Suppression Unit (CSU), and then as a Narcotics Investigator with the Hinesville Anti-Narcotics and Drugs team (H.A.N.D.). I left the police force because of the risk versus benefits of the job. I loved the work but I wasn't able to full provide for my new family with what I was getting paid. My wife is a Nurse so we began talking about future job options to help support our new addition to the family, our daughter Kendall. I went through many options and found that Nursing was my best opportunity. My goals once I graduate are to work in the ER where I can gain my critical care experience and be able to become a Flight Nurse. If that doesn't pan out I want to work in the pediatric department because at heart I am still a big kid and I know that I can bring smiles to an otherwise bad situation when needed. I graduate the Nursing program at the College of Coastal Georgia in May of 2016. I recently was notified that I received a scholarship from Honorsociety.org for a Member Spotlight video I entered. This money will help me to not only become the Nurse I want to be, but it will help me to provide for my family, and the OTHER new addition to my family (That's one toddler and one on the way...if your keeping score). Thank you for letting me spend a little time telling you about myself and my goals and THANK YOU to Honorsociety.org for allowing me the opportunity to show them where I am headed and helping me on my journey.
