ISSA member`s stories of success
Security Operations Center Manager at Cisco I ISSA 2019 Volunteer of the Year I International Keynote Speaker
" I wouldn't be where I am without the International Systems Security Association (ISSA). During night school two and a half years ago is where I first heard of an association of like-minded professionals that would challenge where I wanted to go and how I wanted to grow in the industry. Ever since that one free meeting in Raleigh, I didn't look back. I jumped two feet in as soon as I found out Matthew Young was standing up a chapter here in the Fayetteville Fort Bragg area! This organization helped me give back to the local community what I was missing when I transitioned out of the Army after a 13 year career. With mentors across the industry, male and female, I was able to get my start as a technical writer for the Air Force and work my way to being the SOC Manager for Cisco in the public sector. The ISSA has taught me we are always in a dual role when it comes to mentoring as we continue to learn and grow to better the industry."

Managed Print Analyst at Digital Document Solutions | ISSAFFB Volunteer
Social networking in person is a great resource to find opportunities you may not find online. While attending Fayetteville Technical Community College, I was doing research for a friend. The research lead to the local Xerox dealer, Thomas Hamann was helpful in answering all my questions. Chris Herring an instructor at FTCC will post opportunities he receives. I took advantage of this resource. I submitted my resume to Digital Document Solutions for a position posted by Chris. As I pulled into the parking lot for my interview, I realized it was the local Xerox dealer. The interview included the owner Lanny Leonard and the Sales Manager Thomas Hamann. The interview went well and started my post Military career in Information Technologies as a Managed Print analyst.

PC Technician | Jacobs
Transitioning from the Military at the end of 2020.
I applied to many positions with no results. A member of NC Works transitioning team introduced me to ISSAFFB. After sitting down with Carlos Valencia to review my resume; I applied his feedback. The ISSAFFB team and I went to work and engaging our network.
I began to receive calls to interviews with offers soon after.
Combining my network with ISSAFFB made the transition from Active Duty to Veteran much easier.
