What is your favorite part of your current position: 
Traveling is the best part of the job. In the last two years I have been able to see amazing and unique places across the world. Work feels like a vacation for the majority of trips.
How did your EAS education prepare you for your current job?: 
EAS and Georgia Tech set a great base for study habits and how to learn complicated things quickly, which is important for learning new planes. Meteorology is integral to aviation and having the in depth understanding of the atmosphere has been very helpful.
What do you wish you had known as an EAS undergraduate in order to land the job of your dreams?: 
If you are interested in the Military, there are a ton of different opportunities and programs for a variety of backgrounds that are not well advertised by colleges. I wish I knew about all the choices I truly had.
