Instructor of Communications

I created curriculum that was duplicated at other campuses based in the communications and journalism field. Additionally, I became the managing adviser and editor to the newspaper, to which I brought back after being dormant for years. Because of this, I achieved Adviser of the Year in 2011.

Primanti Brothers Restaurants


I worked nearly every position to become a self-proclaimed "Best Utility Worker Ever" at Primanti's. Restaurant experience taught me excellent skills that are more relevant in life than I would have ever been taught in a classroom; these things I picked up were patience, time management, and team work.

I fully stand by the notion that everyone should have to work in food service to make the world a friendlier place.
