About

I supervise a team of Lobby Security Officers who are responsible for ensuring a safe and secure working environment for Monsanto employees and guests.


While in the military I was an administrative professional with an emphasis in security management. The type of work I performed while in the military and what I am doing today here at Monsanto is similar in nature because I was/am responsible for the protection of company/organizational resources (people, equipment, and facilities).


A significant difference between what I was accustomed to in the military versus what I have come to value and respect since joining Monsanto is the manner in which rules and regulations are developed and enforced (a more democratic approach when leading a team of individuals toward achievement of common goals).

Advice

Serving in the United States military provided me with an opportunity to learn the importance of dedication and loyalty to an organization and team; traits I feel employers in the civilian sector would want to see in their employees. Because of the numerous relocations, short-notice temporary duty deployments, and change in leadership, I developed the ability to adapt to regularly changing conditions, and succeed under the circumstances. I have attended training in the US military which placed emphasis on development of my interpersonal skills; skills which I credit for the success I have enjoyed since my retirement.
