BA Organizational Management

A little bit about me...

I have been in the US Air Force for 23 years in Communications and IT Maintenance. I am stationed in Abilene, Texas as the Operations Flight Superintendent. I graduated from Ashford University in April 2013 Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Organizational Management. I'm currently enrolled at Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech University) pursuing an MBA in Information Technology Management with an anticipated graduation date of October 2016.

I returned back to school in 2011 after meeting an Ashford representative at a conference and decided to give online schools a chance after only believing in brick and mortar institutions. I quickly was able to get into a rhythm and before I knew it, I had achieved a huge life goal in earning my Bachelor's degree. My choice to attend Ashford led to my wife attending Ashford and earning her degree in 2014 and my 18 year old son deciding to attend college right out of high school (he just got accepted to Angelo State University).

During my career, I've always have been about helping those around me and giving back. Being an Ashford CHAMPS Mentor provides me an opportunity to help someone transitioning into the online school environment and help them become very successful and hopefully keep them on their path to achieve their life goals.
