About

My name is Ladonna Love, I am a 2nd class Petty Officer Yeoman assigned to NOSC Memphis Navy Reserve Unit located in Millington, TN. I have been a dedicated sailor for 18 years, 16 years of active duty time and 2 years of reserve time. I have committed myself to mastering every facet of any job assignment. I made my military transition in 2014 when I became a full-time employee with Robert Half in the Memphis east location.

Specific accomplishments include: leadership- assigned to the OPS Unit, took charge introducing the incoming junior sailors to NROWS, NKO, and NSIPS and other essential Navy Programs. Self-Improvement -focused positive influence in the unit, helped increase retention by 55% during the evaluation period. I was a key team player in the Reserve Recall Order Writing program for BIPERS 3 and PERS-9 to PERS-4G. I also drafted and approved 175 sets of Officer Recall orders. I volunteered to help with the flood victims that were affected at Navy Support Activity, Mid-south. I donated 15 hours to 4 local families impacted by the devastating flood waters. I am very motivated toward making a difference in the community.

Advice

My advice to anyone transitioning from Military status to civilian status, please prepare yourself before your departure. This transition could sometimes be very overwhelming. One should start networking and never lose contact with your military family.

It was a great idea to pursue some type of education. I enrolled into a Master Program with Capella University. I have also dedicated over 860 hours of work-study at the VA records department for the VA hospital. Doing some community service will be a good way to enhance your career.
