Why did you choose the Industrial Welding Technician program?
I chose to go into welding so I would be able to work my art into a successful future career. I love being in a mainly male field and showing that women are just as strong and hardworking as men.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?
I have been learning about all the different career fields in the welding and metal fabrication industry. I now realize how many different options I will have when I graduate this May. I can’t wait to continue my search to find the fit for me.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
I chose FVTC for the location and family atmosphere. I also work on campus, and I love how close I have become with my co-workers, teachers, and classmates here. FVTC has given me lifelong friends to count on, and hope that there will always be a place for me in my career field.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
I would like to continue my education after graduation, and find a career in the marine welding field. I would also like to focus on GTAW (gas tungsten arc welding) in a future career.
