I began attending the Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania on September 2004. I graduated with a BSBA with a major in finance and a minor in marketing on December 2008. I enlisted in the United States Air Force as an Aerospace Propulsion Journeyman on May 2009. During my enlistment, I have served in two deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation New Dawn, and Operation Enduring Freedom while simultaneously maintaining a 3.81 overall GPA in my Masters in Accounting and Financial Management with a CFA emphasis program. I will be graduating from that program on December 2012. I will be transitioning from active duty military in April 2013. I anticipate relocating to the Washington D.C. Metro Area upon separation from my military obligation.
