“It’s funny you ask” might be Cody Brooks’ response to a question about how he landed his current role as a financial advisor.
In an educational career that began at Dakota College at Bottineau, Brooks carried his credits on to Valley City State University to complete a Bachelor of Education, along with a minor in marketing.
His first job out of college was teaching business education to high schoolers in western North Dakota.
A last minute decision led Tascha Livingstone to an experience at Dakota College at Bottineau she couldn’t be more thankful for. The Manitoba, Canada, resident, wasn’t sure about plans after high school. But today, after completing two years at DCB, Livingstone is already working a job she loves close to home.
“I didn’t really expect to only go for two years and have a successful job like this,” said Livingstone, who began working as a legal assistant in Crystal City, Manitoba, the Monday after she graduated from DCB in May of 2018.
For Chad Geisinger, his time at Dakota College at Bottineau was the perfect launching pad for an educational path he never thought he’d pursue. Now on his way to earn a master’s degree to practice as an acute care nurse practitioner, Geisinger didn’t always know that’s what he wanted to do. Thankfully, the two-year Associate Degree in Nursing program at DCB set him up for success.
“I wanted to go to a smaller place to knock out my general ed requirements,” said Geisinger. “I was a little uncertain about what I wanted to do. I thought I’d start and go from there.”
