Funny how sometimes it takes someone else to help steer you in the right direction. Luckily for Rick, that someone pointed him toward biomedical equipment repair, and almost 40 years later he still finds it to be incredibly satisfying.

Get to know Rick...

  • What would you tell a student who was on the fence about attending a program of study in your department at IntelliTec? If you want to be a member of a proud profession, this is the place to be.
  • If you had to share a single piece of advice for prospective students in your department, what would it be? Whatever you decide to do in your life, see every commitment through to its completion.
  • Furthermore, what life or career advice would you offer to students about to graduate? Learning is a lifelong experience. Try to learn something new every day.
  • Please share a memorable moment/success story you’ve experienced at IntelliTec. I was asked to perform as Elvis for the students at Student Appreciation Day this past May. They really got kick out of it and I loved doing it.
