I am a native to the Hampton Roads area. I was born in Hampton and spent most of my childhood into my teen years living in the Virginia Beach area. At 21 I joined the Army in pursuit of skills that would prepare me to be a marketable candidate in the work force. After the conclusion of my service, I moved back home and obtained a job with the Department of Defense in the field the Army prepared me for. I am now utilizing the benefits awarded to me by the Army to strengthen my marketability by attending the Cyber Security program at Old Dominion.
