Stephen Mesler

Stephen Mesler Featured Student


My name is Stephen Mesler, I have lived in St. Peters, MO my entire life. I am happily married to my wife, Theresa, for almost 8 years. We have three monsters (cats) together, Chudley, Houdini, and Navi. I have worked multiple positions for the same company before coming to Centriq Training to find a new path for myself.


Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: Technology has always been an interest for me, ever since my dad hooked up our first IBM computer with MS-DOS on it. Working at my current job, where I quickly became the tech guru, I never felt fulfilled and always knew I could do more. I heard the commercial for Centriq Training over the past year and decided it was time to pursue a career I knew I could be passionate about and use my full potential.

Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: C# Fundamentals has been my favorite so far, it’s a great start to the program where the foundations of the programs really take place. Knowing the fundamentals is a great way to understand the vast amount of code we are learning here.

Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: I hope to continue my growth as a programmer/developer and find a career with a company that I can proudly call home and become a vital part of their culture!

Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: I am an avid retro game collector. I recently have gotten in D&D with my group of friends. While I don’t seem to play the part, I am also a die-hard sports fan, mostly baseball. When I am doing those things, I enjoy trying new restaurants with my wife.
