Pleasant Correctional Facility. I started in the Mid 80's at the Fort Madison Penitentiary as summer help and eventually was asked to join the workforce full-time, where I worked for 5 year's before I left in the private sector working with juveniles for the next 3 years.

Once I completed my apprenticeship, I was asked to enter the First Line Supervisors Training offered through BNSF. After completeing the training I became a reilef foreman delegating work assignments to 80 to 100 skilled trades personnel..

After working for the Railroad for 10 year's and being furloughed in Aug of 2001, I was able to reconnect with former corrections staff that were still connected with the Dept. of Corrections and get hired back on. I worked for up unitl July 5th of 2005 and decided I wanted to utilize my machanical skills again, so I worked for a local farmer for the next 5 years who is a family friend rasiing his Elk up until 2010, took a year off to travel and reconnect with family and friends and in March of 2012 was hired by American Ordnance (IAAAP) in Middletown IA as an operator, worked my way back into the mechanical dept. as a millwright.

Was promoted to Mechanical Supervisor with 70 skilled trades personnel reporting to me after working as a millwright for 2, stayed in mechanical for the next 3 yrs before transitioning over to the Safety Dept. as a Safety Engineer 2 the position I currently hold.
