Obtained an A.A.S in Entomology from the Community College of the Air Force, deployed twice in support of Operation Iraqi/Enduring Freedom. Now some updates: Relocated to Northwest Florida in 2011 from Anchorage Alaska. Got State Certified in Lawn & Ornamental. Working as the PCOIC for Grass Roots Lawn & Landscaping. Working on my PLANET Certification from the University of Georgia and studying for the State Exam in GHP.
