Good Afternoon Zandra
Tribute To My Manager, Zandra Harris
It had to be one of the scariest and most overwhelming times in my life. The uncertainty of what life would look like once I no longer wore the Uniform was cause for some anxiety. However, your steadfast devotion to taking me through the various aspects of getting ready for life as a private citizen and taking on a career within the corporate world was commendable. It truly made all the difference and helped facilitate a smooth and seamless transition.
I was able to tackle each step of my transition journey with more zeal and reassurance. Your mentorship and feedback allowed me to be better equipped, from knowing how to highlight those qualities a potential employer would find valuable, to feeling comfortable talking about myself professionally. Your compassion and willingness to allow me to be somewhat vulnerable, and our just in time pep talks helped me feel more confident and sure of myself. Your enthusiasm and encouragement went a long way in me gaining the momentum needed to quickly acclimate to the business world, whether I chose to stay and work in the defense industry or not.
I also appreciated your candor and ability to help me keep things in perspective. It was effective yet genuinely kind. Please let your leadership know I truly appreciate your dedication to serving as an ACP mentor and making a difference to transitioning service members like me. You Rock!
