Hi, I’m Beata and I am a mom and a Navy veteran.

I would like to help you with your military transition so you can spend more time with your family and enjoying your life.

I am equal parts analytical and impulsive. I make lots of plans in my head for a very long time then, one day, when even I don’t expect it, I do the thing!

This has been both a benefit and a detriment.
The cool part is… I’ve made all the mistakes, so you don’t have to.

A little bit about myself:

  1. I grew up in San Diego and joined the Navy thinking I wanted to get away. Got stationed in Norfolk, realized I was wrong.
  2. I got pregnant while on Sea Duty and my anxiety has never let me live that shit down.
  3. I deployed when my daughter was a year old, and my depression has never let me live that shit down.
  4. I made First Class in five years and my impostor syndrome says it was pure luck
  5. I was medically retired at ten years (still as a First Class)
  6. I was a Gas Turbines Tech (Electrical)
  7. Now I do private security contracting
  8. I’ve been trying to make money online since I was a kid. I’ve been mildly successful.
  9. I’ve collected tons of certifications that have nothing to do with each other
  10. I want to be a farmer when I grow up
  11. I made a Facebook page to get people to read this blog and it devolved into a meme page which is likely how you found me (guess it worked!)

The bottom line is I’m resourceful but I’m a lot better at leading people to resources than using them myself.

I came into the Navy thinking I wanted to turn wrenches, but I quickly found myself in a leadership position and actually fell in love with the idea of “Taking Care of Sailors.”

While my time in the Navy has ended, I hope to continue to take care of Sailors in my own way here.
