WHERE ARE YOU FROM? Morehead, Kentucky

DID YOU SERVE IN THE MILITARY? Yes, I was active duty Air Force from 1998-2018.

HOW LONG WITH THE 340TH FTG? I have been working here for about a year and a half.


WHAT DO YOU DO ON A DAILY BASIS? I serve as one of the focal points for all travel payment processes, to include inputting/auditing/disbursing travel vouchers in the Reserve Travel System (RTS) and reviewing all travel vouchers that come through the Defense Travel System (DTS). Additionally, I provide travel entitlement guidance, clarification, and travel voucher training to all personnel assigned to the group, in accordance with financial regulations and instructions. I am also the Agency Program Coordinator (APC) for the Government Travel Charge Card (GTCC) program for the 340th FTG.

HOW DOES YOUR JOB SUPPORT THE 340TH FTG MISSION? By providing sound, comprehensive travel entitlement and pay system support to all 340th FTG commanders, military members and civilian employees to ensure their focus remains on the mission.

WHAT DO YOU FIND MOST REWARDING ABOUT YOUR WORK AT THE 340TH? I enjoy the comradery of the group and knowing that I make a difference with ensuring the mission gets done.

FAMILY? SPOUSE/KIDS? I have a husband, Jamie, and two kids, Anabella, 7 and Benjamin, 4.

ANY COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES? When I have time, I volunteer at the women’s shelter.

WHAT IS THE ONE PIECE OF INFORMATION OR ADVICE ABOUT WORKING AT THE 340TH FTG THAT YOU'D PASS ON TO NEW MEMBERS OF THE 340TH FTG TEAM? If you are not familiar with the Reserve world, I recommend learning as much as you can. Coming from the active duty world, I did not realize how differently processes were done, especially in the financial management field. Lastly, a positive attitude and an open mind go a long way. There will always be challenges in our day-to-day duties, but you just have to remember that how you react to those challenges makes all the difference in the world. Attitude is a choice, so I always try to have a positive one as much as I can.

NAME ONE THING YOU’D LIKE FOLKS TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I’m extremely happy to be working here on JBSA-Randolph. I tried to get stationed here my whole AF career, so to finally be working here, I feel that I have come full circle. I’m looking forward to working here for many years to come.
