Manager, A/P, P/R & Benefits Reading Area Community College
What brought you to RACC?
I was going through a rough time in my personal life. I ran into a friend who was in the same situation as I was, and was attending RACC. She told me all about RACC, and how to apply for financial aid so I was able to attend RACC.
How did your experience at RACC shape your career path?
RACC helped me when I was at my lowest point in my life. Doing well at RACC helped my self-esteem, and helped me get better jobs along the way. When I saw a job opening at RACC, I applied immediately. RACC was my happy place as a student, and became my happy place as an employee.
What advice/insight would you give to current RACC students?
Stay focused on your classes, and stay up-to-date on your assignments. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing your name at graduation.
2021 marks RACC’s 50th Anniversary. What message would you like to pass on to President Looney and the RACC Community on this historic occasion?
I am very grateful for my past experiences as a student at RACC. It turned my life around - from not knowing where I was going, to leading me back to RACC as an employee. I definitely am #RACC PROUD!
