BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --

"I have been in the Air Force for 20 years and been at Beale for five years. As the career assistance advisor, I'm in a position to advise and help develop the Airmen at Beale and I absolutely love it. I can't believe I got the opportunity to do this; 100 percent of my time and energy is spent helping Airmen. My favorite part of the job is when I am able to help somebody who has run into roadblocks by making a few phone calls. People look at me like I work magic."
