AS in Business Administration
Currently enrolled in the Purdue University Accomplished Clerical Excellence Prgram (ACE Class-34)
- The bulk of my experience is in Manufacturing Administration. For 18 years I worked in an administrative capacity alongside my father, who owned a high volume precision manufacturing company. We manufactured automotive components to blueprint spec. My primary role was administrative. However, by nature, working in a small company gave me the opportunity to wear many hats; from banking and quality control to driving the fork truck and delivering parts.
- I have been working at Purdue University since September 2008 and with the Exploratory Studies since July 2011. I enjoy working in academia. I find the atmosphere very energizing.
