I emancipated myself at 17 to serve in the US Navy. I trained in Chicago before being attached to the Marines in both San Diego and Okinawa. Upon my depart from the military,I took up charge of project management and writing up and negotiating government bids for my family’s construction company in Fresno, while attending college at Fresno State. Following a brief stint heading up an electro-physiology department at a medical school in Puerto Rico, I grew a moving company headquartered in DC to multiple locations across the East coast. What brings me back to San Diego you ask? Not only to be closer to family, but to also to be able to take care of my own – the military community.
My heart for my military comrades extends deep into the daily interactions with clients as well as local businesses. Along with the DoD, I'm working on setting up an initiative so that transitioning military members can capitalize on existing programs to get more technical certificates – without a ton of leg work and red tape – so that they’re able to secure decent employment. I've had the pleasure of assisting with job placement for his clients as well as being able to save some their jobs by helping them get certified!
San Diego is a regional-centric market, where local businesses are willing to work together to satisfy the huge need. I believe local companies working together is important as it strengthens infrastructure, which is important in producing specialized niche markets.
In my spare time, I like getting out and doing something – anything! Unless cornflakes and cartoons are involved…
