In addition to running my health coaching business, I am also a commissioned Air Force officer and have served on active duty from 2011 to 2017 and now as a Reservist. 

To give you a bit of background, I did my undergraduate studies at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and joined Detachment 750 Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia in the Spring of 2009.

I commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in May 2011 and moved to Guam to serve my first assignment as the Deputy Chief of Public Affairs for two and a half years with the 36th Wing at Andersen Air Force Base.

I then moved to Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware to become the Chief of Public Affairs for the 436th Airlift Wing.

While stationed at Dover I  did a short six-month assignment at United States Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida.

I then returned to Dover where I separated from active duty and transitioned via the Palace Front program to the Air Force Reserve, where I took my first Reserve position as the Executive Officer to the 512th Maintenance Group Commander. 

Following that assignment I took a position at the Air Force National Media Office in New York City, and as of March 2018 is where I fulfill my Air Force Reserve duties. 

I joined the Air Force all those years ago because my younger brother, Mitchell, decided to enlist in the Marine Corps. I was so proud of him! Following in his footsteps, I made the decision to serve, as did my younger sister (Mitchell's twin, Jaclyn) who is also an Air Force Captain. We've made quite the little military family for ourselves!

You can read a bit more about my military service via a feature interview I did with Fabletics as one of their Fabletics Masters!

I wanted to take a second to publicly recognize and thank all military service members past and present. Thank you so much for your service and sacrifice to our Nation, as well as for the sacrifices of your families and loved ones. My Air Force service has been my honor and I'm so proud to stand among some of the most incredible humans I've ever known. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
