I am excited to be part of CVCC since 2015 and absolutely love it!  Before joining the CVCC family I worked at Garfield Heights High School in the Food Tech and Chef's classes for three years. Prior to this I worked in Ashtabula for 10 years until they closed the program. 
I recently earned my Transition To Work License to better serve my students in 2020.  I have my bachelor's degree from Ashland University, Master's degree from Nova Southeastern and a Special degree from Cleveland State. I started my family in 2015 and now have two little boys CJ and Parker.  They are growing up so fast.
I believe that all students have the opportunity to learn and it is my job to teach them the necessary skills that are needed in the workplace. Students will develop career awareness and employability skills needed for gaining and maintaining employment in diverse business setting.

Program Description
