Worked for a small business owner in the food service industry for 5 years where I managed a catering crew before starting my 17-year career in workforce development.

Currently, I am the Business Services Manager and Sector Lead for the construction and technology industries as well as leading the exploration of childcare sector partnership.

Own my own wood shop making chicken coops, yard furniture, and creative storage solutions.
I’m an excellent prep cook – slicing, dicing, chopping, and stirring. If I can pick a thing up, I can probably balance it on the tip of my finger or the palm of my hand.
