We’re all faced with challenges in life, some greater than others. For me, it was balancing duties as a single mother and serving in the the United States Army. While my children were my number one priority, my career could not take a backseat.
As my children grew, so did my responsibilities in the Army. I was faced with promotions, the possibility of deployments, transfers, and much more – the same as my fellow service members. But no matter the situation, the well-being of my children was always at the top of my mind. They factored into every decision I had to make.
