Top Character Strengths
HONESTY - LOVE - SPIRITUALITY
What character strength do you value the most and why?
Honesty is what I value most, as transparency is everything to me. Being honest and transparent sets the tone, which leads to results and proficiency. This not only harmonizes the atmosphere, but builds trust and confidence in those around you.
How do your top character strengths support your work at TMF?
My honesty allows me to be straightforward with the veteran community. One quality in which we all understand and respect. The love for this field of work is exuding, and shows in the time and effort put forth. Spirituality allows me to understand, feel what others feel, and gives me the drive to right any wrongs. I believe that these strengths not only make me a strong leader, but one who seeks knowledge and guidance.
What do you enjoy most about working with veterans, survivors, and inspired civilians?
I enjoy making a positive impact the most. Whether it’s small or great, as long as the seed’s been planted. In doing so, my goal is to inspire those individuals to pay it forward. As a veteran myself, I feel it’s my duty to create a better tomorrow for those as inspired and willing to go above and beyond.
