Teacher Assistant

I am originally from Maryland and joined the Marine Corps in 1982. During the first 17 years of service, I was a assigned as a motor transport operator. During the last part of my career, I served as a military instructor for the Staff Noncommissioned Officer (SNCO) Academy in Camp Pendleton California. My final assignment was initially as a curriculum developer for the Enlisted Professional Military Education Branch of Marine Corps University. Subsequently I was assigned as an academics supervisor for all six SNCO academies. Upon my retirement I was hired as a civil service employee as the Dean of Academics for the Enlisted Professional Military Education Branch, Marine Corps University. My active duty service was comprised of over 24 years with an additional four years as a civil service employee.

During 2010, my wife and I decided to leave the Washington, DC area and return to her hometown of Jacksonville, NC.  I spent the next two years being actively retired and volunteering many hours at Stateside Elementary. In 2012, I was hired as a teacher assistant and am currently part of the Kindergarten team.

I am an ordained minister through the National Christian Church and my wife and I are also the founders of a local, non-profit organization that provides transitional housing for the homeless. While we are quite busy,  My family and I enjoy spending time at the beach, especially at Topsail Island - our favorite get-away destination for the weekends.

I have four daughters, two grandsons and one more on the way in October!
