“My name is Juli. I live in Waupun with my husband in a house that we bought last year. We absolutely love being homeowners. In our free time we like to make improvements on the house and when the weather is nice we like to go on Harley rides. I don’t have my own, but I keep telling myself that someday I will.
Meet Becky Henne, a soon-to-be graduate of the Moraine Park medical assistant program. She currently lives in Waupun with her husband and together they have five children and three grandchildren! Her hobbies include camping, walking, being outdoors, and spending time with her family.
I’m Colin Brenner, I live in Mt. Calvary on my parent’s dairy farm. I have helped them with the farm since I was able to walk. I enjoy fishing, hunting, watching the Brewers and the Packers.
Want to change careers? Need direction in life? So did Gena Winter.
“I hit a point in my life where I wanted a career change. I was focused on finding a job that would best suit my family time and yet something that I would really enjoy doing on a daily basis. I didn’t know where to turn so I made an appointment with an MPTC counselor. After reviewing my interest, she pointed me to the Medical Assistant program where I fell in love with it. With my kids being active in school and sports, I was able to take most of my classes at night or online at MPTC. The training and education itself was a short period of time.”
Jared Dutra is in the Information Technology – Mobile Applications Developer program here at Moraine Park. We sat down with him to ask some questions about his experience in the program and working in the field.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a 20 year old just following my dreams. Believe it or not, mobile app development came to me right after I graduated, about two years ago. I had plans to go into the military, but broke my knee two weeks before graduating high school. So I got a job at a call center, moved into my own apartment, and started my own life grinding to make it work.
What program have you studied at Moraine Park, and why did you go into this field?
I’m in the Information Technology – Mobile Applications Developer program. I chose this field because I’m interested in all kinds of development, but the mobile platforms are growing substantially right now. So there’s a large, new, market that is ready for me to tap.
What are your plans after graduation from MPTC?
I have already been hired as a developer at Sun Graphics Media in Sheboygan. They are a marketing firm that does a large variety of services, but I landed the position as a developer for websites and mobile web apps.
