As a member of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, I grew up in our small community and quickly realized how important it is to invest in the future of the Tribe. Years later, I would not have dreamt of the job opportunities I’ve had at the Tribe. As the operations manager for PCI Aviation, a company that specializes in serving federal customers by offering engineering, logistics and manufacturing services, I have had the opportunity to further the Tribe’s economic diversification. This opportunity has also allowed me to grow as a business leader. The Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 8(a) Business Development Program has offered me an avenue as a young entrepreneur that I otherwise would not have had to enter the government contracting space. Without the backing of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, I would not have been able to take advantage of these opportunities. I am excited for our future in government contracting.
