What does your work involve at Robins? "I am an electronics mechanic working on the ARC-186 VHF- AM/FM Radio Set. My work involves testing, trouble-shooting, modifying, interpreting circuit wiring, block diagrams, schematics and making repairs to complex electrical circuits. My work also involves producing A condition assets for numerous air frames we have at Robins."

What do you enjoy most about your work? "By using Art of the Possible and being focused on eliminating constraints within my critical path, I can provide combat-ready avionic parts and services for our warfighters."

How does your work contribute to the Robins mission? "What I enjoy most about my work is knowing that what I do as an electronics mechanic is ultimately part of a bigger picture - supporting the men and women fighting for our country every day."

What prompted your interest in your current career field? "I have always had an interest in how things work mechanically and electrically.  When I was able to enroll in the co-op program at Middle Georgia Technical College, I jumped at the opportunity to become an electronics mechanic and work at Robins."

Who has been the biggest influence in your life? "My mother has influenced a big part of my life. I learned from her to never give up. No matter how bad things get, how much you struggle, how tired you are, how hurt you are or how hard it is - no matter how many times you fail, keep trying. Get up, show up and do the best you can every day."
