Career Development,
#### Career Development

I have spent my entire professional career helping individuals understand their self-worth; their aspirations; and the avenues open to them to achieve their goals. As a senior military officer, I worked with young enlisted and officers to provide them with opportunities for growth. During my years of teaching (at the high school; junior college; and college levels), I have continued to work with students to help them focus on their goals and work to provide them opportunities to achieve their dreams. Today, as a Professor at the University of Nevada, I work with Crisis & Emergency Management Graduate Students to find them organizations where they can intern to gain real-world experience. I have been very successful in placing people in roles that are compatible with their personal/professional goals. I never give up on any person. I teach people to be winners.

Public Speaking
#### Public Speaking

I was the Executive Director of the FBI National Citizens Academy Alumni Association for 10 years. As such, I was required to make numerous public speeches on behalf of the FBI and other law enforcement organizations. I am articulate and can speak with a written script. I believe that any speech beyond 10 minutes is probably wasting the audience's time. I speak in a clear, precise, and brief language. I enjoy being in-front of people and giving speeches.

## Knowledgeable and Very patient

Mr. Sanford provides my son with the confidence and tools he needs to retake the ASVAB. My son now has a better understanding of how to successfully solve math problems that have been an issue for him. They are preparing to work on grammar to improve his scores in that area as well. I am very pleased with results thus far. This is the most comfortable I have seen my son with a tutor. I am very grateful for Sanford!
