I have served as Acting Manager on several occasions based on my leadership and superb work ethics. I have the ability to recognize and understand customer service needs of the traveling public and balance these needs with safety and security in mind. I provide and balance the interests of various people and adjust when necessary to respond to pressing and changing demands. Oversee the screening checkpoint / checked baggage stations on a daily basis, resolve X-Ray and ETD alarms. As a supervisor I schedule adequate number of TSO's to provide screening of all persons, baggage, and cargo. Work closely with Officer’s, managers, airport administration staff, and law enforcement personnel on airport property to ensure all TSA Policies, Procedures and Management Directives are enforced. Direct work of employees, assigns tasks, and monitor and evaluate performance via PASS competency ratings. Enforce TSA Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to prevent, effectively spot security breaches, and to mitigate any threats to the traveling public. Participate in sensitive security information briefings pertaining to classified information. Maintain communication with management regarding issues that might reveal any security weaknesses. Assist management and TSI’s with inquiries for information or investigations. Make certain that both Checkpoint and Checked Baggage PMIS documents are properly accounted for and submitted into PMIS database at the conclusion of daily operation. Enforce TSA Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to prevent, effectively spot security breaches, and to mitigate any threats to the traveling public. Participate in sensitive security information briefings pertaining to classified information. Maintain communication with management regarding issues that might reveal any security weaknesses. Assist management and TSI’s with inquiries for information or investigations.


As an OJT mentor/coach, I implemented coaching to identify needs and strengths, and make suggestions for improvement in a manner to build confidence and self-esteem. I guide and coach new TSO's to mitigate threats by utilizing tactical communication principles. I give support through one-on-one or in a group setting to build trust and confidence while ensuring compliance with the SOP. Responsible for dealing with a multitude of issues / conflicts that exist in the workforce. In dealing with these challenges, I validate each of the individuals concerns, ask pertinent questions, listen to the individuals, uncover any underlying reasons for the issue, explore options of each party, and ultimately assist in finding solutions that are conducive to parties involved. Before a resolution can be made, I make sure to check with all related Management Directives or Standard Operating Procedures to ensure the best route was taken that will benefit not only the individuals, but the entire workforce.

Conduct collaborative discussions with the TSO workforce and Management staff to enhance our efforts to improve the workplace environment. By having those discussions, I create a practice that I take back to the workplace. That practice may involve positive team building activities or it may involve bridging the communication between workforce and FSD Staff.


Communicate effectively with passengers. Treat passengers and my security team with dignity and respect and respond appropriately to the needs and feelings of different people and situations at all levels of the organization. Build relationships with internal and external stakeholders that will foster mutually beneficial outcomes while supporting TSA's missions and goals. Inform passengers of screening regulations concerning screening requirements. Maintain a positive response to continuous changes to the SOP. Exceptional oral communication and listening skills have always been an integral part of my daily duties as a Transportation Security Officer (TSO). As a supervisor, I am required to speak clearly and effectively to ensure that my fellow Officer’s, internal / external Stakeholders, and the travelling public receive all relevant information that I am conveying. At the beginning of my shift, I conduct a local and National shift brief to the workforce. I must make sure that all new procedural changes and up to the minute information gets disseminated and understood by the entire workforce each and every day. TSA’s Mission relies on the Officer’s working as one unified team in a concerted effort to thwart any threats to general aviation, which requires the need to understand and clearly interpret all of the latest screening revisions in the necessary procedures. This can only be accomplished if the information being given is presented in a manner which is effective and convincing to the Officer’s. Written communication is becoming increasingly vital as technology continues to progress. In my experience as a TSO and a Supervisor, electronic mail (email), is becoming one of the most central forms of communication. Currently, I send and receive over 30 agency related emails per day. It is imperative for me to respond to any email in a clear and concise manner, utilizing tact and courtesy, and all relevant information included in the email document.


Maintaining focus and awareness while working in a stressful environment which includes noise from alarms, machinery and people, crowd distractions, time pressures and disruptive and angry passengers, in order to preserve the professional ability to identify and locate potentially life threatening or mass destruction devices and to make effective decisions in both crisis and routine situations. Assess my surroundings and utilize professional judgement to process information and make complex decisions as well as analyzing and evaluating information to mitigate threats. Analyze information to interpret TSA’s often changing rules and regulations, and apply as necessary to Airport Operations and the functionality of the screening process
