Since joining KSI on 10/22/12 I have been a dedicated member of the community. When I first joined i was very quiet and reserved, but thanks to some awesome leaders in the community, I slowly came out of my shell. I learned to be confident in my skills, and my voice, learning to lead my squad (Lethal DM) to succeed. I worked my way up the ranks in DM, helping build the division into a huge powerhouse at the time. I lead T&E to become one of the most active divisions in KSI while also working my way towards to director. Eventually I worked my way up to Senior Director, helping lead the community alongside KSI Greg 7 and KSI Chedderbob 7. As great as this experience was, shortly achieving the rank of CPO I was lucky enough to marry my best friend in the world and sadly had to step away from the community for awhile to focus on life. Now in 2018 I have found a new home in KSI, a great division called Divine Warriors, and have had a great time working with these amazing people. Since my return I have also been lucky enough to work with the community through Performance Operations and Human Resources. Super excited to see what the future holds.

Objective: *What are your goals here in KSI? What inspires you? Why are you a part of this community?*
My goals in KSI are to help grow as a member and to rank up to help inspire other members, as well as spreading as much knowledge as possible to make this community as big and great as possible.
Summary: *Write a paragraph about yourself, describing your abilities and skills (professionally, obviously)*
Being that I have been in KSI before I know what is expected of me and I have been in many situations where the issue was sensitive and had to take causion to a member wanting to leave or members not feeling wanted in the community. I have also been General multiple times and brought a dying squad back from the brink of death never been a Gen before and making it split. I have also brought up people within the community who were very skilled leaders and even if they aren’t around every member leaves a mark.
