What have you been doing since graduation?
Working a lot! It’s been great since graduation – I got hired quickly and haven’t looked back since.
What is most rewarding about your job?
The most rewarding part of my job besides helping people daily, is seeing all the hard work and hours I put into studying paying off.
How did Casa Loma College help you get where you are today?
I had a great relationship with all my teachers and I keep in contact with them whenever I need help with something. It’s all in the effort that you put in, if you want it – try your hardest and reach out for help as there is always someone there for you, it’s like a family.
What’s one piece of advice you might give to a Casa Loma College student?
If you think you’re studying enough, you’re not. The things you learn will help you daily and the better you prepare for it now will benefit you in the future. Also, take your externship very seriously because it is like a job interview. I was hired and a week later was offered a full-time position somewhere else from someone I’d never met simply because of word of mouth. Simply put, you get what you put into it. .
What are some highlights from your time at Casa Loma College?
The thing I’ll remember the most is the friendships that I made over the course of those two years. It’s a great support system to have in the future as well.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I spend all my spare time with my wife and two young boys, Aiden,5 and Dylan, 3; and getting ready for the birth of my daughter next month. I had to give up a lot of time with my family because of studying so it feels great to be able to focus on them and have a really great career.
Have you traveled since graduation? If so, where?
We took the kids to Legoland for a few days in November and since I’m getting a lot of overtime we’re trying to plan a trip to Disneyland before the new baby is born. Hopefully this summer we’ll be able to travel somewhere and take some needed time off.
Where do you see yourself five years from now in your career?
In five years, I hope to be a lead tech in an imaging facility or in a supervisory position with county of Los Angeles.
