I provide a creative and exciting learning environment for our students to explore Graphic & Web Design careers. Along with being in the industry for over 20+ years myself I also am in the process of earning a degree in Photography. Outside of school, I belong to many organizations that help me keep current in my field. Both of my grown sons and I are J. Everett Light Career Center alumni (as well as a North Central graduates) and we know the benefits and opportunities that we gained by taking classes here and how it has made a great impact on our lives as well as our careers. I love teaching and want to pass these same gifts to my students.
