Biography

My career in precision machining started when I enrolled in a machine shop class at Seneca Vocational High School. After completing the program and graduating from high school, I started working in the machining industry, gaining new skills at different companies. Because of my experience and knowledge in the machining industry, I had the opportunity to teach Machine Shop Technology to adults and high school students. I returned to the machining industry for several years before coming to Reading Muhlenberg CTC. I am pleased to have the opportunity to return to education, where I can pass on the skills and knowledge needed for a rewarding career in the machining industry.
