"My career started with a joy and passion for cooking. During the culinary course, I learned how to motivate people and manage processes. I found out that I excelled at both during school. CTE gave me a real environment to learn and apply skills I was taught. I found this type of learning suited me better than the traditional classroom setting. In my career today, it still comes down to motivating people and managing processes to achieve goals and business objectives."
