Mr. Expert Buyer

About Me:

I am a non-traditional student with an undergrad. I went back to school at 30 and graduated with a 3.3 GPA – while working 30ish hours a week. Since I have a son with disabilities I haven’t pursued any additional certificates after graduating. I also have small business management experience before my undergrad.

I did not go to college directly out of high school instead tried to create my own opportunities through entrepreneurship. I learned some hard lessons that have shaped who I am today for the better.
