I am retired from the Department of Defense, and a Veteran of the Army National Guard and Coast Guard. I have my B.S. in Management, M.A. in Health Studies from University of Alabama (ROLLTIDE!), and I am working on my Doctorate in Business. I am a huge nerd! I love Sci-Fi Comics and all that stuff… but I am also a super-sports fan. I love Star Wars.
