I wanted to find a place where I could apply my prior knowledge but also pick up on new skills in different categories of work. With this being said, the Boone EDC seemed like a perfect fit. So far, it is going well and I am excited to see what’s in store.

I am looking forward to my time here with the goal of transforming my learnings into positive changes in the community and a revelation of my own future career path.
