Before I explain to you why I would be a great addition to your team, let me give you a brief background of how I ended up where I am today.
Exactly three years ago, I was getting ready to return from Iraq after my third deployment with the US Army as a Captain in the Military Intelligence Branch. I had spent the last 15 months tracking, analyzing, and targeting the enemy networks in Baghdad. It was the most rewarding job I had ever had. I had made the decision to leave the military upon my return from Iraq – I wanted to settle down, start a family, secure a high-paying job in the business world, and be physically close to my sisters and parents after 10 years of living far away.
Shortly after, I began my new life with a great-paying job in NYC, I was living on the Upper West Side in a gorgeous apartment with my sister, and I had the freedom and luxury to run whenever and wherever I wanted.
Fast forward to today.
I am a happy stay at home mom to my 1 year old son, AJ. Shortly after he was born, I made the decision to stop working. I knew that if I had to be away from him for any sizable chunk of time, it needed to be for something I loved, something that truly made me happy. The job I had was no longer fulfilling. I didn’t wake up every day excited to go to work. I had NO PASSION for what I was doing.
