在我20年的海军生涯中, I attended several technical schools from basic engine/hydraulics to advanced diesel engine inspection / electro-hydraulic control schools. After being stationed in several areas around the United States and overseas I ended up spending my last five years in Naval Training Center Great Lakes training new sailors just starting their Navy carriers and learning that I enjoyed teaching. After I retired from the Navy in 2004 I went to work in the beverage industry as a repair technician and later I worked at Cessna Aircraft on the Citation Mustang jet. In 2010 I decided to return to school so I used my VA benefits and started attending Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, KS wherein 2013 I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Vocational – Technical Education. I continued with school and received my Masters of Science in Career and Technical Education in 2015. 毕业后, I worked for the State of Missouri until I was able to obtain the position here at OSUIT in May 2017.
