Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: I decided to come to Centriq to become more proficient at my job and obtain my certifications. Several of my Soldiers have attended Centriq and I was impressed with the vast knowledge they obtained in the IT field.
Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: It’s a toss-up between A+ and Powershell. The instructors for A+ made it fun and it was more technical then I thought it would be. I feel like Powershell opened a lot of doors for me in the future and will challenge me.
Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: My goal after Centriq is to drop my Warrant Officer Packet for the military. All I need to finish my packet is Security +. I would also love to come back and one day teach at Centriq. I have yet to meet an instructor that does not absolutely love their job here.
Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: I love to enter fun runs with my kids and my Troops. I also enjoy stand up paddle board when the weather allows. In the winter time I enjoy sewing and quilting.
