My parents raised me in a home that centered on the family and worked diligently to honor the two great commandments: love God and love thy neighbor. I still endeavor to live my life according to those principles. The core values of the Air Force aligned perfectly into what my parents taught me and I continue to hold on to them.
Integrity First – I consider myself to be a person of integrity, courage and conviction. Exercise courage, honesty and accountability in order to do what is right, even (especially) when no one is looking
Service Before Self – Professional and family duties take precedence over personal wants. Exhibit self-discipline and possess respect for the beliefs and worth of others.
Excellence in All We Do – Strive for continual improvement in self and service in order to propel a community to achieve greater performance and accomplishment for themselves and their community.
I am a staunch conservative who believes the words of our Nation’s Founders that “all men are created equal” and that governments derive “their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
