I have been in the Indiana Army National Guard since April 2013. I attended basic training at Fort Jackson, SC and AIT at Fort Leonard Wood Missouri. My MOS is 12N horizontal construction engineer (heavy equipment operator). Currently, I am a staff sergeant. I have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan where I was tasked to construct base defenses for force protection. I'm currently in the wastewater apprenticeship program working with the Town of Sunman after completion of my wastewater certification, I will start the apprenticeship program for my water certification to get dual certified. I can continue to grow and excel in this profession making a positive impact on the world of water and wastewater treatment.
