What do you love about working with Atlas Benefit Consulting?

I have been through the process utilized by Atlas Benefit Consulting, so I have experienced the way we operate firsthand. Veterans are often left to navigate the VA disability on their own. This can be a confusing journey that results in outcomes that are not what a veteran desires. More importantly, a veteran misses out on compensation they deserve to live a happy and whole life. This not only affects the veteran, but it also affects the entire family unit. It is unfair and simply not right. ABC puts the power back in the veteran’s hands. The veteran gets to work with other veterans or veteran related family members, that truly understand the need to obtain adequate compensation. ABC truly unites us all, its why I am here. Its why I believe this system put together works.

What strengths do you bring to the team?

I have experienced ABC’s process and I can help veterans unsure of the process understand how it works and how they get to tell their story. Our transition to the civilian world isn’t handled the way it should be. We all know that. But the world we live in, we, as veterans, need to continue the fight to get what each of us deserve. I strive to fight the good fight for my fellow brothers and sisters as well as for their families. You are part of the 7.3% of the American population that has served, you deserve to be whole. I help you realize your full potential.

What is something you wish everyone knew about you?

I am a relatively new father with two beautiful children by way of my beautiful wife, Amanda. A daughter who is my little miracle baby, and her younger brother who I love just as much. They are my life achievement, and it is why this is so important to me. We have to be present for our children. Our ailments need to be fixed by the VA so we can be.

What is my favorite book and what do you love about it?

I am a huge history nerd, so my favorite book is The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. I love that it is a 900 page, extremely document based book about the Germans in World War 2, yet it reads like a story book.
