"I think I could fill an entire article up with exciting or cool things about my job! Definitely in the top are that the view outside of my office constantly changes, the fact that I get to meet so many different people and seeing so many different parts of the world. It's great to be able to see the smile on people's faces as they start their vacations or travel to be with their loved ones. I've also had the pleasure of bringing soldiers back from Iraq to reunite them with their families. All in all everyday at work is a memorable one."
