Working with dynamic people and programs within the State of South Carolina, I developed, organized and grew a state Directorate with the Joint Force headquarters element. I was directly involved with the Employment Readiness, Yellow Ribbon, Family and Youth Programs, Military Funeral Honors and the SHARP program.
During my tenure we worked long days (6 days per week avg.) and we grew from 38 Personnel to 118 personnel in our first year. We realinged the entire directorate to better enhance our overall communication(s) and departmental development.
The time served building a dynamic team of professional individuals and having the core being (mostly) retired military professionals to help guide, direct, mentor and develop each other within the body was phenominal.
Working with exceptional DoD civilians and Soldiers alike
