It’s very rewarding when I get that follow-on phone call or discussion after class, and I can provide service to the students by answering a question or helping them out. It’s great to know that the students trust me to be there for them all the time, not just during class.

As an instructor pilot, I am afforded the privilege and opportunity to interact and learn from the finest aircrew members across Coast Guard aviation, and then to share that wealth of knowledge with both new and experienced pilots. When a new pilot learns from your instruction, it is extremely rewarding. However, it also brings with it a heavy burden because you are responsible for perpetuating proper techniques.

“One of my biggest motivations is the desire to produce the best technicians possible to the fleet; people who can show up to their first unit as Electronics Technicians with the basic knowledge they need to be productive members of the team. It’s very rewarding to teach lessons and then see students perform well during the practical portion of the class.”

“If we are being honest, there were two reasons that motivated me to become a Company Commander. First, I wanted to give back to the service that had been so good to me for 12 years. I had a personal desire to make the biggest positive impact on the future of the Coast Guard and what better place to do that than TRACEN Cape May. This place is literally step one, ground zero, the event horizon of more than 80 percent of the Coast Guard’s entire workforce. Second, I needed a break from calibrating radar’s and replacing chart plotters.”
