Linda Dahlquist - Instructional Assistant

Linda Dahlquist, Instructional Assistant

Hi, I'm Linda and I love to spend my non working days fishing, golfing, having fun with my grand children and simply enjoying the out of doors.

Indoors, I am an Instructional Assistant in the Automotive Technology Program. I schedule vehicles, order parts, and run a tool room for the live work portion of the students education.

My job is considered a non-traditional one: in that there are not a lot of women in the automotive field, but it is now becoming a realistic goal. There is a genuine need for individuals in every facet of this field. Come join us!
