Steve Kramer

My journey started back in 2000. I was working at Cub Foods as a dairy/frozen assistant manager. My roommate was going to Herzing University and introduced me to the world of technology. It was time for a change. I graduated in 2003 with an associate degree. I finished my bachelor’s degree in 2011. I work as a network engineer at a company in Madison, Wisconsin. I have been there six years. Herzing University prepared me for a lot of the things I see on the job today.
