I joined the Customized Training Center in January of 2014, but I am no stranger to Alex Tech. I started at the college in 1987 as a faculty member in Hospitality and Business Management. Previous to ATCC, I worked in hotel and destination resorts, managing properties in Minnesota, Texas, and Colorado. I have a B.S. from Mankato State University and an M.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Stout.

Sandy, Linda, Jolene, Greg and our other staff await the opportunity to be of service!
