I am a 25 year old professional, currently working with Vulcan Materials Company for their Technical Services Department. I serve in a "roving" capacity - covering locations in MD, VA and NC. I run various geological tests in order to ensure that our product meets all state and customer specifications and provide data that is useful in designing job-mixes for asphalt and concrete applications. In the past I have also held positions of; laborer, rail-car switchman, scale-clerk and procurement specialist. After my first year with VMC (due to family and situational circumstances) I took 18 months and earned a sports nutrition certification from the National Sports Nutrition Association and a personal training certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association. NSCA is currently the only personal training certification that requires either a bachelor's degree or a recommendation for testing. My pre-requisite education was received at the National Personal Training Institute (NPTI) school in Colorado Springs, CO. After completion, I worked as a trainer at Gold's Gym and privately for various personal clients. I am most interested in biopharmaceutical, tech and industrial stocks. I am a small-scale personal income investor and also manage a portion of my 401K as part of my stock-portfolio.
