As a Coastie, I have traveled the States for the past 20 years going from coast to coast and one amazing adventure to another.
Read on in this blog to hear stories about my experiences living the Coast Guard life, not only as a military officer but also as a small town Midwestern girl who left home to enlist in the United States Coast Guard.
I look forward to hearing what you have to say about... My Coast Guard Career.

You May Be Wondering...

Why it is that I just started this blog? Well, as you continue to read my postings, you will find out that the Coast Guard is full of amazing opportunities and I am in the midst of one... a full scholarship to attend graduate school.

The Coast Guard has many programs that offer advanced education with about 25 of those being the chance to attend graduate school. I was selected to attend the University of Georgia to get a masters degree in Public Relations. Sounds pretty good, huh? After I graduate, I will most likely be headed to Washington, D.C. as a Public Affairs Officer.

So, what does that have to do with a blog you ask? Well, I am learning how to use social media to develop an image (if you are reading this blog, you are probably well aware of the power of social networking). I am on an adventure to see how I can connect with others and develop an identity online. So, I am off like the tortoise!
