I worked professionally in the field for 13 years. I hold an Associates degree in Automotive Trades, a Bachelors degree in Vocational/Career Education, and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership. I have had the pleasure to achieve and maintain industry certification in my previous program as well as SPHS's. Active through June 2020
