"NWTC motivated me to continue my education," says Cathy, who has a bachelor’s degree from Concordia University and a master’s degree from Cardinal Stritch.

Nursing Assistant, 2002; Radiography, 2006; Practical Nursing, 2007; Nursing Associate Degree, 2008
Owner of Helping Hands Caregivers

When Ying opened Helping Hands Caregivers in 2008, she had two employees. As her business quickly grew, she added staff. Today she has about 120 employees! She credits her NWTC instructors for encouraging her to follow her dreams. "The instructors at NWTC always encouraged me to go out and chase after what it is I want," Ying says. "I believe that without the foundation of health care instructors who had the passion to teach not only what they learned from professional but also personal experience, I would not have had the passion to pursue what I do today."

Architectural Technology, 2008
Building Information Modeling Specialist
with Berners-Schober Architects

On the job, there's nothing Blake likes better than seeing his drawings or ideas become reality. "I'm often given the opportunity to provide input in the design of the buildings we are working on, and sometimes one of the ideas I present is the one that eventually gets built," Blake says. He adds that NWTC prepared him for his job by giving him a great base of knowledge. "At NWTC I learned many of the technical terms required to communicate within the industry," he says. "I was also exposed to many of the computer programs that are used every day in the architectural industry."
