My road in life took a while to figure out.
From a young age, I wanted to be an artist.
Attended community college and studied fine art.
Obtained a job at McDonnell Douglas Aerospace Company (now Boeing) as a name plate fabricator—my graphic arts experience and education helped to get "my foot in the door."
Due to a reduction in the workforce, I was laid off.
Six years later, an opportunity arose to return to Boeing as a contractor for a small telecommunications company in information technology on a two year contract.
Began learning IT skills and was rehired full-time with The Boeing Company in information technology on the condition that I would obtain a degree in that field.
Obtained a Bachelor of Science in Management from the University of Phoenix.
Have been working at Boeing for over 25 years collectively.
