Why did you choose to work for PD&C? 

“When I first came to Purdue, I was looking for a job and Wiley was just across the street from where I was living at the time. I knew a few people from Wiley so I decided to work here. I then wanted to go through the ranks because of finances and wanting the experience of more responsibility. After talking to a few managers and some of the administrators, they helped me get more hours and mentored me through balancing school, work, and home life.”
