I began my working career in high school and after 15 years of employment, found myself to be a dislocated worker without a college degree. While studying at Wilkes Community College, I have gained an immeasurable amount of knowledge in both the Business Administration and Accounting fields of work. The college has not only aided me in gaining new work skills but networking relationships were built that will last a lifetime. For the past two years, I have been employed as a part-time work study for the Dean and Faculty Advisors of the Business and Public Service Technologies Division of Wilkes Community College. I have also served as Project Manager for the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) Club. Maintaining a 4.0 GPA, I am also a member of Phi Theta Kappa.
My husband Alex, four year old daughter Carlye, and my loving family have provided outstanding support and patience and I contribute my determination to succeed to them. I have come to realize that a college education is vitally important to the success of an individual in today's work force. Although I started later in life than I had hoped to, this educational journey has been challenging, rewarding, and a necessary step to ensure my future employment goals are attainable.
