My goal is to stop the decrease in AFSA memberships. This starts with effectively communicating AFSA's importance to the military community at Nellis through community outreach and assistance campaigns. Additionally, I want to help pilot our chapter in working through our four lines of effort: professional development, base/community involvement, membership, and fundraising. I believe these LOEs will help curtail the downward trend in memberships and increase our profile in the local community.

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done. Make at least one definite move daily toward your goal.

Life is meant to be fun and enjoyed. How do you do this every day? By understanding that the purpose of life, is a life of purpose. Find your WHY! Grab ahold of it and live your life based on it. To manifest the desires of your heart, mind and spirit, give them three things: Attention, Intent and Emotion. Lisa Nichols said, “Your whole life is a manifestation of the thoughts that go on in your head”. What are you thinking? I challenge you to think BIG! Once you’ve got it, think BIGGER!!

I'm still serving through volunteerism, actions speak louder than words, there are so many that need a helping hand. Service does not end when you take off your uniform. AFSA is an advocate for all Active Duty, Retirees, Veterans, and family members on Capitol Hill, we are only as strong as our membership. Everyone should care about the benefits they currently have and the future of what could happen to those benefits. Unfortunately most people don't care until they are taken away. Do you care? Are you a member?

"Leadership is all about people. It is not about organizations. It is not about plans. It is not about strategies. It is all about people-motivating people to get the job done. You have to be people-centered."
