My road in life has taken me all over.
I grew up on Oahu, where it was sun, surf, and sand 24/7.
I decided that I wanted to travel and get paid for it, so I joined the military after high school.
After leaving service, I went to college and dabbled in different majors, like politics and history.
Finally biology caught my attention; that started my interest in the medical field.
It took me six years to complete college because I chose to take the scenic route and enjoy myself.
I struggled with PTSD when I got back; my peers said I was a "shell of my old self."
I had a great foundation of friends and family that was there for me and helped me through it.
I now work as a medical officer at KIT Group and in a pediatrician's office.
Keep following my journey

Day to Day

If someone was to shadow me, they'd hopefully get to lead a portion of a safety class out on the shooting range. We always get clients who get "slide bites," so there's a good chance that they'd actually get to treat a small injury, maybe throw on some bandages. Our main goal out on the shooting range is always to make sure everyone leaves with the same amount of holes that they came with.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for professionals

Make sure you find a job where you're going to wake up every day feeling excited and fulfilled by your job. You might take a job that excites you initially, but after a year or two, you get burned out and realize it's not actually what you want to do. Most people reach that point, or that hill, and fall back down. Instead, find a job that makes you hit that hill and want to keep climbing.
