            As a TSTC Graduate I entered the workforce in Auto Collision Industry in 2002. I have earned several positions that have lead me to be very successful in life. From beginning as a Porter washing cars all the way to becoming a body shop estimator. My Auto Collision experience has given me the opportunity to give back to my community and my TSTC family. By returning to TSTC as an educator, with my 14yrs of field experience I can help students learn a trade that will also help them better their future. I am very fortunate to work with great people but also have an opportunity to share my passion for the Auto Collision Industry.
