Manufacturing Engineer, CAD Engineering • January 1989 - January 2017
When people ask where I went to college, I generally say "Hard Knocks University". When I need to learn something that involves my job or interests, I apply myself completely. I read and study everything I can on the task. I have attended several training courses including Fanuc robotic programming and all of the Solidworks courses (Essentials, sheet metal, and weldments). I do regret not getting my degree in engineering, but I truly believe by working my way to my current position has made me a better Manufacturing Engineer. I am currently studying for my weld inspector certificate.
