Why is serving in the Air Force important to you? It represents opportunity for any path or choice you can make as a person.  For me, I chose to serve to become a strong, self-assured individual.

What moment or accomplishment as a member of the Iceman Team are you most proud of and why? I would have to say in general, just being here and watching how this team grows and becomes a family without much thought or difficulties.

What is your favorite part of your job? My favorite part is being able to know, or get to know everyone on base and being able to help members with whatever issue they have.

Who inspires you and why? I would have to say, without a doubt, my mother, who is my strength and the woman I go to for every situation where I need a helping hand.

What's your favorite part about being in Alaska? My favorite part of being in Alaska is being surrounded in beauty and wilderness. Coming from a plains area, I can’t get enough of the trees and changing landscape.
