“I was still fresh out of high school, fresh out basic training, new to college, new to my job, and new to my first apartment. Everything was new to me! I was in search of basic life skills to help me through a difficult and uncomfortable transition into adulthood. Often, I questioned, why I wasn’t taught certain things in school? I learned a lot on my own through my personal experiences, and I was able to use those experiences to give guidance to my peers. I am sympathetic to the feeling that no one should have to make as many mistakes as I did, to get “adulating” right. So I set-out on an adventure. Sykes S.T.E.P.S was born from my passion to make the transition into adulthood easier for others.
It has been an honor to be acknowledged as the face and driving force behind such a powerful organization and to grow with the company.”
