Be more present with the ones you love while still chipping away at your future goals.

How does your Why drive you to be a part of the THF Ecosystem?
I love the work that THF does. I think there is huge power in stopping for a moment and checking in with yourself on your personal goals as you make a huge transition. THF facilitates an inward look that everyone needs when putting away one developmental part of your life to move into the next.

30 years in the U.S. Army, 25 in Special Forces.

Fierce Empathy. I believe that empathy is what makes America’s fiercest warriors into America’s strongest leaders.
