After serving my country on a nuclear powered submarine, I moved into pharmaceuticals. I like to work somewhere that satisfies an internal need to help others. My ability to streamline and increase productivity gives my employer that much more opportunity to provide a service or product to someone who really needs it. I enjoy meeting new colleagues and thrive in an environment where my upbeat and contagiously positive attitude are well received. How can I help you today?

I am primarily a distance education student. This presented a challenge as I was largely self taught and self paced. This developed skills and competences in me that would be valuable in any workplace.
Additionally as a non-traditional student I had several years of experience before going to college so the education was that much more relevant to me.
I expect to graduate in Spring of 2014 with a GPA >3.0
I finished this degree with a GPA of 3.2 and used the credit to transfer to East Carolina University.
