I joined the United States Military in 2004 as a member of the United States Navy. I spent four years in the Navy where I deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan for multiple campaigns. I left the U.S. Navy in 2008 and enlisted into the Army National Guard. I am a 13B Ammo Team Chief and have experience working as a Squad Leader at the JBMDL Warrior Transition Unit where I helped injured, ill and wounded soldiers transition back into civilian life or to their home station units. I joined TD Bank in January 2015 as a Business Development Specialist. My role at TD is to speak with business owners throughout TD Bank's footprint and have conversations with them about their business needs. I have found that my experience and leadership from the military has helped me tremendously in my role. I utilize the skills and knowledge that I have acquired over the last 11 years in the military to help me stay focused on what's important throughout the day.
