"I am looking for a career, not just a job."
I have served the City of South Bend Indiana for over 20 years as a full-time uniformed police officer. I have not only enjoyed my time serving the community and it's citizens, but I value the problem solving skills that I have learned in this position. Police work is ever challenging, and I embrace the character building traits that I have gained from this position. Some of the work that I am most proud of has been aiding and assisting domestic violence victims to a safer alternative from their current situations. Rescuing a vulnerable individual from an abusive and a seemingly hopeless situation is truly rewarding. My approach has always been to show humility and compassion for individual victims, and to follow through with their recovery from these volatile lifestyles. My time spent as a public servant has proven to be invaluable and has given me a natural character quality of integrity.
United Auto Parts of Venice Florida has providing me with an opportunity to transition my online auto parts sales experience into a successful retail location. United Auto Parts sells new aftermarket automotive parts to retail and commercial customers. As the owner I oversee business budget planning and administration, accounting functions, purchasing and weekly payroll. The retail aspects of this business has taught me advertising and marketing skills, as well as the overall importance of great customer service. This business has served Venice for nearly 45 years and I am proud to carry on with it's lasting tradition. With this new venture I learn something new everyday and I enjoy the responsibilities that come with it.
I have owned and operated an automotive salvage parts business for several years. Chad's Auto Parts is a local Ebay dealer in which automotive parts are resold on Ebay. Although sales are primarily online this is a brick and mortar operation in which I dismantle vehicles and salvage the sellable parts. I managed as many as four employees at any given time in a successful venture that I truly enjoy. I consider myself an entrepreneur with quality mechanical skills, and this business allows me to work hard and strive for success while also applying myself in a mechanical work environment. I have also gained people and organizational skills which I developed by managing personnel and the overall day to day operations. I am proud to have always complied with state salvage licensing and laws. I developed the skill of operating heavy equipment including forklifts and tow trucks. The opportunity to own and operate this business is not only exciting, but educational as well.
In order to maintain this certification I have had continued education for over 20 years. Each year with a minimum number of credit hours required, of which I've always achieved. This certification requires classroom study and field training alike.
I am proud to call myself a Riley Wildcat. As an inner city school this environment taught me diversity, and to have an appreciation for my community. The skilled trades classes allowed me to participate in the
co-op program, which provided me with a technical eduction and job experience. This school built my character and is the foundation to whom I am today.
