"Through observing strong leaders, I was able to see how the power of leadership develops people into high performers. By facing obstacles, I gained the confidence to take on new challenges and gained the belief that I can achieve whatever I set out to do. My exposure to numerous cultures gave me the opportunity to observe common bonds which has allowed me to see the world as a community and relate to others."

"I use what I learned in the service - focus and discipline - everyday in my KPMG work. It's also great to connect to other veterans of the firm - we have a bond because we've been through some of the same things."

"As I transitioned from Active Duty to the private sector nearly 14 years ago, KPMG stood out amongst our competitors then. Fast forward to the present and KPMG has expanded Veteras Benefits that are second to none. As an Army officer, the leadership training, both at the strategic level and operational level, has helped me in KPMG's Advisory Practice. I continue to serve my country as a Reservist and the KPMG leadership team fully suport my role and help balance this commitment with my KPMG duties"
