Hayden, I’m excited to be starting full-time work again. After 8 yrs with AAA, it was an awakening process with the way things have changed with resumes, finding a potential job and interviewing for a position. I learned a lot from Sue Berg and Debra Johnson in their training classes. Thank you for passing off job leads to me. – Kay Bohaty
