I've used all my experiences to move myself forward and bring others along. In my veteran initiative, Vets2Cloud, I've launched Vets2Admin and Vets2Dev in helping veterans transition into the workforce as Salesforce business consultants @ 7-10 a year. 

In Oct 2018, my father passed away so I decided to launch a new firm, knowrx.mobi to help with drug management care. Spending six weeks in an ICU and becoming depressed and not engaged in work/life, etc... I had to determine what motivated me and why.  My story is about making a change based on going through a difficult loss and a growing business to start something new that you're passionate about.
