Best Service To Customers And Citizens

I completed the Green Belt course shortly after transitioning out of the Army. It helped me quickly integrate into my organization and serve as an asset in our pursuit of providing the best service possible for our customers and citizens.

The Green Belt course was a great way to learn the tools and techniques that are being applied in the most competitive industries around the globe. It helped me to rapidly serve as an asset to my organization and quickly identify opportunities for improvement, then get to work.
