What did you love about YA?
YA gave me the tools I needed to succeed
early in my IT career. It also gave me a leg up
once I left high school and got a full-time job in IT.
How did YA influence your plans after high school?
After I graduated, I moved to Minnesota and
started working for Cargill as a contractor.
After my contract expired, I moved on to ADC Telecommunications starting in Deskside
Support and eventually moving into a Business
Analyst and Software Developer role. After 7
years with ADC Telecommunications, I moved on to The Toro Company. I worked at one of Toro’s manufacturing facilities doing everything
IT related (Phones, Network, Servers,
Desktops, Programming, etc.). In 2020 I was
offered a Sr Network Administrator position at
Toro’s headquarters. In late 2021, in addition
to my current role, I took over supervising
Genesys Works high school interns at Toro.
It’s similar to the YA program and I feel like I’ve gone full circle from being a high school intern
to supervising some of them.
