PROUDEST MOMENT IN MY CAREER
Running into a veteran we had helped years ago get off the streets. He was living in his car. He now has a good job, is married and has two children. When he said to me, “I would not have all this good stuff in my life without the help your office gave me,” it was by far my proudest moment at Nation’s Finest.

WHY I JOINED NATION’S FINEST
As a veteran myself, I wanted to help other veterans. It turned out to be more gratifying than I ever imagined. What has kept me here is seeing Nation’s Finest improve people's lives over and over again.
MOST REWARDING ASPECT OF MY ROLE AT NATION’S FINEST
Watching our staff grow and develop their skills, then watching all that learning go to work and seeing the happy faces of all the veterans we're able to help

SONG I LOVE (AND WHY)
"Rhapsody in Blue" by George Gershwin - the music seems to move through all the highs and lows associated with the rhapsodies of life, and each part of the 16-minute song is a theme I can relate to
