“As a role model, teacher and friend, Robert has influenced my life, both personally and professionally, to the importance of doing the hard work of ‘deciding what you believe’ and ‘what you are committed to,’ then lining those up with ‘how you actually spend your time.’ That formula has led to true leadership that others will follow.” Joey Milan, President – Hospitality 7, LLC
“I could not imagine where I would be today if it was not for Robert’s uncanny ability to provide the guidance so many young Marines needed within our unit who had personal life issues obstructing their opportunities to excel. His professional relationship with others is inspiring. He has provided many people with confidence to deal with life complexities and the reasoning as to why it is important to make the right choices for the future.” Juan J. Mora – USMC Retired
