Amplify Your

"In 2012, I took a job at a small family-owned machine shop with zero experience. I started off sweeping the floor...I realized I wanted to grow my career and go back to school. I enrolled at UW-Green Bay and got into operational leadership while pursuing my degree. I got to a point where I felt I had hit my ceiling in my career without my degree."
