KEISER UNIVERSITY, Associates in Information Technology, May2016
Finding what my true aspirations are took some time but I know exactly what I want to do now. Serving communities is what’s meant for me. Not only do I find solace and peace with knowing that my career contributes to the fight for an equal opportunity – I better myself everyday through the work I do. Here at Getman, Sweeney & Dunn, I am able to work for the people. I am able to use my skills and knowledge not only to pave a path for those that need the assistance but help them reach a destination that they did not think was possible. It is an inspiration to work with such talented human beings here and I could not have asked for a better team to have by my side to fight injustices in the workplace.
