Why did you choose MBP?

Having a construction background before and during my time in the Navy, I knew that this would be my career for life. I met the great people of MBP at a job fair geared for transitioning service members. MBP gave me this great opportunity to stay in construction on the management/inspection side.

What did you find to be the most rewarding part of transitioning to the workforce?

The family feeling of MBP. When I started with MBP, I was still on terminal leave. They made me feel welcomed right away and have been for almost 15 years.

How has your military experience helped you in the workforce?

Being on the construction side of the military has helped me by learning different styles of construction that I see on a day-to-day basis.

What advice would you give someone getting ready to transition?

Don’t stress about it being a big change in your life. It is very different, but if you find a new company like MBP that treats you as family and not a number you will find that it’s pretty close to the comradery you felt while being deployed in the military.
