"I became involved in Career and Technical Education during my freshman year of high school when I was enrolled in a Family and Consumer Sciences class by my high school counselor. Little did I know that decision would honestly change my career path and the course of my entire adult life. Fast forward 17 years later and I am still as passionate about this field as I was all of those years ago!"
