Time in service: 7 years
Hometown: Byron, Ga.

What does your work involve at Robins? "I manage a portfolio of about $119 million used to purchase common support equipment."

How does your work contribute to the Robins mission? "We're buying common support equipment critical to the mission by being responsive to warfighter needs. We're always postured to be able to spend fallout dollars whenever available in order to better meet the needs of our airmen keeping us war-ready to fly, fight and win."

What do you enjoy most about your work? "My favorite part of the job is year-end closeout. With Support Equipment and Vehicles' reputation for being able to execute last-minute fallout dollars, it makes for a very fast-paced work environment. Since we're up until the early hours of the morning, it's fun getting to see another side of your coworkers."

What prompted your interest in your current career field? "I would have loved to fight alongside the warfighter, as I love my country. But, since that isn't possible with my disability, I decided the next best thing was for me to work hard supporting them on the home front."
