What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
I left school before my Leaving Certificate, which I would not advise. I worked hard at everything I did and constantly tried to up my game.
I would advise to never take no for an answer, to get your foot in the door and work your way to where you want to go. My son is now twenty and is in college and he got great advice from career guidance in school.
What is your education to date?
Secondary School, Glengara Park, Glenageary. I left school after fifth year. Courses since have been in sales, computers, tax and hygiene - any area required to advance the job I was working in.
What aspects of your education have proven most important for your job?
Education of life!
Have you undertaken, or do you plan to undertake any further training as part of your job?
I will be doing a fish filleting course very soon.
