What is your current job?


My current job is an Account Manager with Federal Heath Visual Communications. I manage multiple large petroleum accounts from the beginning of a quoteequest to the invoicing of the material.


How did UW-Parkside help prepare you for this job?

UW-Parkside helped prepare me for this role in many ways. One of the major ways is by giving me real life experience while achieving my Certificate in Project Management. My classes taught me how to manage projects as how I would in my career.

What would be your advice to students at UW-Parkside currently pursuing a CBEC degree? 

My advice would be to get as many connections and involvement as you can with your colleagues, professors, and advisors. You never know how a connection will benefit you in your future. Also, remember to enjoy your time in college but stay on track and prepare for your future.
