Surely, it isn’t by a spin on the wheel of fortune. I myself am a firm believer in the power of curiosity and choice as the turbine of moral fulfillment, but precisely how you emerge at your legitimate calling is a convoluted and highly individual waltz of discovery.

By starting out small and working my way to this goal it will allow me to demonstrate my aptitude for managing and having patients with others through responsibility. I am a dedicated and hope to better both my career and my community through my commitment and dedication through tough cases and people to deal with. To create a safer environment for all mankind is my number one goal. “Success is getting what you want, happiness is wanting what you get”
