Travel Experience

While working as the Corporate Controller at my previous employer, I had the opportunity to travel to many places in South America, Europe, and Asia. It was through this experience that I realized that, while cultures are different, people everywhere want the same basic thing, security, ability to provide for their families and happiness. The friendships that I made through the course of these travels remain even though the trips themselves are long over. Friendships made during such experiences make the world feel like a smaller place.
