As a 1991 graduate of Marion High School I took the workforce classes my junior & senior years so I could work part–time while going to school and receiving credit. Thus, my first job was Burger King where I stayed to become an assistant manager. Deciding to go on to college I enrolled in the Fashion Merchandising and Marketing programs in 1994 at John A. Logan and graduated with the 2 Associates Degrees and a certification in Computer Information Systems in 1997. The academic instruction I received at JALC enabled me to complete my Bachelor Degree in 1999 at Southern Illinois University. My family and I make our home here in Carterville and any support I can give back to the college is something I am proud to do and joining the JALC Alumni gives me that opportunity.
