One of my favorite professional experiences…

One of my favorite jobs was when I was delivered a packet of prints and assigned a new project to build a piece of a production line that would help get product to the market sooner. One such machine was a very small laser welder that would improve production and quality of a forceps tool. This tool would help the doctors in procedures to prevent colon cancer. My payday came when one of these improved devices helped my own father. I have also had many wonderful experiences in teaching that could fill a book.

One of my Favorite Professional Experiences

My favorite professional experiences would have to be the education I received from the College of Tech at ISU. Without my education, I would not have the chance to do something I enjoy and still get paid for it. Machining amazes me every day, being able to see shape form out of raw material. It is something that amazes everyone!
