Personal Statement

I have been welding for a living since 1989. I spent nearly 10 years in the fabrication/manufacturing industries and worked in the construction industry since 2000 as a member of Ironworker's Local Union #86. I have worked on high-rise buildings and bridges, as well as on assembly lines and in repair shops.

I taught in elementary school from 1994-1997, then I decided I liked being a welder more than being a grade school teacher...

I taught in the Ironworker's Apprenticeship from 2007 to 2014, and in the state college system since 2010.  After earning my M.Ed. in Instructional Design in 2019, I began working in the Teaching and Learning Center providing instructional support to fellow faculty.

I am an American Welding Society (AWS) Certified Welding Inspector with an endorsement in aluminum, and a Certified Welding Educator. I am an AWS and Washington Association of Building Officials (WABO) Certified Welder in SMAW, GMAW, FCAW and GTAW; in sheet metal, plate, rebar, and pipe.
