As the new commander, I am sure some of you may have been curious of my background and read through my bio. I always wanted to know where the new boss came from and tried to get an idea of his or her experience before they arrived. So as you may have seen, I’ve had a quite diverse and joint career. I spent a year with the U.S. Marine Corps, two years at U.S. Northern Command, I deployed to Qatar at AFCENT’s Combined Air Operations Center, I served as a commander and deputy commander for two different joint task force exercises, and, most recently, I served as the vice wing commander of a wing hosting 20 geographically separated units across numerous Marine and Army installations.
