I grew up in Farmington, New Mexico and joined the Air Force after graduation. I spent six years in the military as a Weather Forecaster providing flight weather briefs to crews. I spent a tour in Doha, Qatar after 9/11. After I left the Air Force, I started school at a community college in MA, and then moved on to UMass Amherst, graduating with a BA in English.
I have worked with the Lessons Learned Center since April of 2006 and I have really enjoyed watching the center grow.
