Top Character Strengths



Personality Profile

What character strength do you value the most and why? 
I value love the most.  Being a husband and father of three children, I know how important and impactful a loving family environment is. 

How do your top character strengths support your work at TMF? 
In my role, I facilitate the training and development of spartan mentors to work with youth on identifying and strengthening their character strengths.  I regularly leverage my character strength of Humor to help our Spartans feel comfortable and open up during our training sessions. 

What do you enjoy most about working with veterans, survivors, and inspired civilians?
Like some veterans, after I was honorably discharged and became a civilian, I struggled to find my place in society and how to feel fulfilled.  I’m proud that I get to help others find their sense of service and meaning, and I hope to learn from them along the way.
