Do you have any advice for recent and future graduates?

Always work toward your goals and your dreams.

How did your time at BHS impact your adult life?

After graduating, I was unsure what I wanted to be, so I went to college for general classes. Down the road, I realized that I wanted to be able to help kids, and that is why I went to apply for the associate position and I have never looked back. I love my job and the kids I work with everyday.
