In Addition …

My journey has taken me into a variety of positions in which I was able to apply my education and previous experiences. Each position also required me to continue to develop new skills and knowledge. These experiences impact what I see as important and necessary skills students truly need for the workplace. Students must prepare for lifelong learning in order to be effective, productive and innovative employees of the future.
