He has a background in teaching, congressional work, and the CIA, and he was inspired to pursue a career in the public sector by his grandfather, who was a fire chief for 39 years. He has coached JV softball and was an assistant head coach for a state championship swimming team. On today's episode, with Jon, we cover the SEAL Program, skill-based hiring, and more.
