    August 2003 Grad
    Journalism and Mass Communication (VisCom emphasis) w/ minors in Economics and Psychology

    Current Occupation
    Technical Writer/Editor - Publications Manager (for the Army)

    I'm not so much using my journalism skills as much as I'm using my writing abilities that I learned in journalism, my graphics editing skills I learned with the VisCom emphasis, as well as all of the technical drawing and editing skills that I learned in my couple of years of engineering at ISU as well as two years of drafting I had in high school. How I got my job wasn't so much due to the fact that I'm a Journalism major, but more due to the culmination of my education experiences all throughout college and even into high school. My economics minor comes into play if I ever decided to leave tech writing for something more business-oriented with the government.

    I now supervise a fry line where chicken nuggets and hot wings are made for the largerst Kosher meat plant in North America. I don't think any class I took at college could have prepared me for what I am doing.
