 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Worked in the Paper & Pulp Industry specifically plant engineering and maintenance.  Licensed level 2 WWTP operator in NC.  Part time instructor at local junior college for math and NEC.  After that went back into steam boilers and became a National Board Certified Boiler Inspector with commissions in TN, NC, SC, GA, and FL.  In addition, received level two infrared thermographer from FLIR.  While doing all this I got involved with my church and teach Sunday School.   I enjoyed being a part of my church family and desided to be more involved and extended my church family by joining Emmaus.   Currently, involved in Kiaros at two maximum security prisons in NC.  Still enjoying serving others, God Bless & Decolores!
