Helping People

Day to Day

I interact with businesses throughout Wyoming, as they apply for training grants for their employees, interns, apprentices, and potential new hires. I draft contracts, manage existing contracts, and complete final report reviews for contracts that have ended. I am on the computer and phone most of the day.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

Finish high school. If secondary education is a good fit, consider taking some business courses, accounting courses, and technology courses. Ensure good communication skills, both speaking and writing. Work experience will always be helpful and can be gained through summer jobs, internships, or entry level job experience.
