Top Character Strengths



Personality Profile

What character strength do you value the most and why?
I value my top character strength, Kindness, the most since it impacts every part of my life. It is never a bad time to be kind to one another and it can be shown in many different forms. It brings me great joy to see somebody’s joy increased by something I was a part of, either by baking some cookies, or just being there as a friend.

How do your top character strengths support your work at TMF?
The combination of these three characters I believe work well together with program coordination since understanding what we need and being able to make the right decision on it, all while maintaining a kind composure is imperative to this position.

What do you enjoy most about working with veterans, survivors, and inspired civilians?
I love to talk with them and learn their story, from their hometown to where they are now. Everybody has a unique story but the US military is something that we all have in common and brings us together from around the world.
