Why did you choose the Information Systems Security Specialist and Network Systems Administration programs?

I love security, and technology has always interested me. I was looking to leverage my security background in a new way, and decided that Information Security was the answer.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

I like to learn, and I like a challenge. These are two things you can count on being present in any IT career. There will always be something new to learn here, and you never know it all.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

After reviewing several different programs and their content, FVTC looked to have the better program for a better price. Besides that, I knew the kind of education I would get here from my previous degree in Security and Loss Prevention. I had a great career thanks to what I learned here.

How did Fox Valley Technical College help you change your life?

Believe it or not, being a student again has helped me prioritize things in my life better. I feel like I'm investing more into the things that matter, while still leaving room for other activities and interests.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?

I'd really like to find a role in Information Security, likely starting out as an analyst. I think that will give me the platform to leverage the skills I've been learning in my studies, and give me the flexibility to continue my education even more.
