Employee Profile

Employee Profile

After serving 11 years of active duty service in the United States Coast Guard, the experience I attained allowed for a smooth transition when I began employment two years ago with Tampa Electric Company. Part of that experience was obtaining a security and law enforcement background which equipped me with the skills to fulfill my duties and responsibilities as a Technical Security Specialist, where I oversee the daily physical security operations for Big Bend Power Station.

Tampa Electric Company continues to be supportive of me as I continue to serve my country in the United States Coast Guard Reserves, and I am thankful that Tampa Electric Company recognized the knowledge, skills, and abilities I acquired while serving my country, and for giving me the opportunity to be a “Hired Hero”.
