Teaching is my second career. After being in Business Management for approximately 15 years, where I worked in Office Management, Accounting, Sales, Marketing, Restaurant and Banquet Management, Information Technology, and General Management; I wanted to make a difference with teenagers and their employability and work skills. I was able to use this experience with my Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration to successfully achieved my Post-Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Business Education.
