Transition was rough for me. Did 8 years as AD Army w/ 2 tours in Afghanistan in BCTs. I got my MBA right after my exit - this helped me adjust a bit b/c I was able to connect with other veterans in my cohort and overall in Boston where I found a nice network. I now work remotely in Healthcare consulting and feel a little isolated as I'm the only one at my boutique firm.

I'm still very happy I made the jump. I just wish I did it sooner.


What’s the designer brand question lol


Yes it's an ice breaker

BioTech | Pharma | LifeSciences
Do not have a favorite but I do lean toward Victoria Beckham's line on Pinterest....

What are y’all doing to recruit new talent to agencies right now? My firm (NY-based) is having a challenging time finding qualified people across all levels (except entry level/AC/AAE).

I flunked out of school and had no options when I joined the army. I hated every second of my time in, and spent all my weekends getting as drunk as possible.

Now that I’m out, I graduated with my BA in Econ, got a job I love, and somehow got into an M7 Bschool with a 670 GMAT. I look back on my time in and laugh, and still talk with some of my old army buddies (though not as often anymore)

Amazing how time can change your perspective, because 10 years ago I never thought I’d be here.
