Time in service: 10 years

Hometown:  Perry, Ga.

What does your work involve at Robins? "I inspect F-15 aircraft for discrepancies and create a maintenance work request with all the necessary information that is required for mechanics to perform their jobs."

What do you enjoy most about your work? "I have always been an observant person and I enjoy working with computers. Evaluation and inspection gives me the opportunity to do both."

How does your work contribute to the Robins mission? "I ensure that my customer, the mechanic, has all the information he/she needs to produce a quality product back into the hands of our customers, the warfighter."

What prompted your interest in your current career field? "Back before I started at Robins, I didn't know what I wanted to do. My dad suggested taking sheet metal and trying to get a job at the base. I took him up on his offer and here I am 10 years later."

Who has been the biggest influence in your life? "My family. They have always been there for me and still are."
