Training is something that I’ve been doing for a while. Before TSA, I worked for a brokerage firm in New York city as a wire operator tasked with handling one of the firm's money market accounts. With that, I had to provide training for employees in several of their job functions. I carried over many of those lessons of one-on-one instruction and small group sessions to TSA.

I admit I didn't know what to expect when I got the job. I only knew I was there to protect the flying public, but not sure how. Now I have a better understanding of the TSA mission. The truth is, adversaries are always looking for ways to inflict harm and carry out attacks. As TSA officers, we are securing individual lives and securing a way of life – and that’s a big deal.
