  • In addition to wrapping up my degree at Humboldt this Spring, I will be searching for a new career. I am a Navy veteran. My job in the Navy was a nuclear machinst mate. I have experience working on Nimitz Class nuclear aircraft carriers. Although I'm proud of my experience, I am looking forward to a career in a much more "organic" environment.
