I started going to Carrington in February of 2015 and, within a few months, had my first job. One of the first RVTs I met and had the opportunity to work with was Tina B. I have always admired her ethics and knowledge. She would always push me to learn more and even test me. Which at the time I didn't like... but looking back, I am incredibly thankful for it.
