Where I Trained
NorthWest Arkansas Community College
What I earned
Associate of Applied Science in Computer Aid Design with an emphasis in Architectural Design and an Associate of Applied Science in Construction Technology

The drafting courses that I took in high school sparked my interest in architecture and construction. Having an opportunity to be involved with a project from the initial design, and witnessing it being built from the ground up is satisfying."
