My 14 years of educational experience has helped me develop the skills needed to support others and be a an asset to your company. While serving as an educational leader I have also strengthened my ability to work independently or in a group environment, become detail oriented, and work effectively and efficiently in any environment. For 14 years I have given my all to the world of education and reached my goal of serving as a Secondary Principal on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Leading a school was awesome and amazing! During my tenure we reached outstanding growth, revolutionized the educational structure, and created an organizational environment that was positively recognized by the South Dakota Secretary of Education. However, while the outcome was outstanding I realized there is more to life. This summer I took the risk and began the transition to San Diego so I could be closer to my parents (who live in the Clairemont-Mesa area), spend more quality time with my family (I have been married for 12 years and have seven amazing children), and connect with nonprofit organizations that serve those less fortunate (S.O.M.E. Foundation). While my journey is not finished the experiences I have gained from the past several months have been extraordinary and worth the risk.
