About us--biographies for A1Z Director and Sr Enlisted Leader


We are dedicated to helping our forces and families find the resources and support they need to succeed and thrive in all aspects of military life.  Resiliency, mental and physical health, spirituality, positive relationships – these are the qualities for which we strive in ourselves and others. While this is our goal, we consistently look for ways to improve our tools, training, communication and initiatives for you, our most valuable resource.


Military life for those in uniform, and for those who work and live alongside them, is demanding. Service member, civilian, or family member - our main goal is to help you meet those challenges head on by providing skills, resources and tools to not only enhance resiliency, but help you drive toward the greatest potential from each new challenge.

Every opportunity for change is an opportunity for growth. But we all could use some support along the way. That’s why we’re here – to encourage help-seeking when needed and to promote connectedness so that we can recognize the signs of distress in others. As a team, we all hold the responsibility to look out for signs of distress in ourselves and those around us so that we can take care of our #1 priority - people.

The focus of our work is you - providing our Airmen, Guardians and their families the tools and resources needed to thrive.  To achieve that end, we must also mitigate all instances of interpersonal and self-directed violence within the Department of the Air Force, while promoting resiliency, connectedness and respect for all.
