I served from 1998-2003, was stationed in MCAS New River, my unit was HMM 162, and I am an Iraqi Freedom Veteran. After being Honorably discharged in 2003 I returned to Chicago to go to college. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2010. I began working at Walgreens in April of 2014 as a Senior Accountant, and have recently accepted a position as a Senior Financial Analyst in the Results and Planning Department.
In my new role I will be part of a team that looks to increase value and forecast accuracy for Walgreens, by looking for opportunities to increase efficiency and effectiveness. What attracted me to this new position is the opportunity to find areas for improvement. As a AVI tech in the Marines my job was to fix aircraft in a safe and efficient manner learning from every maintenance task to spot recurring problems. I believe that this new role will be similar in that fashion, find faults and fix them.
