Why did I decide to work in this field and/or at Millikin? 

I see myself as a person that doesn’t think twice about using my skills and abilities to help someone else achieve a dream or goal. This is something I practice in my everyday life and being able to do that as a profession from the place that I developed many of those skills and abilities is a great start to a beautiful dream.
