I’m currently working at the Pinnacle Health Family Care of Millersburg. I like helping the individuals that come into the office. Being able to be a part of them growing and getting better helps me to grow as well. Everything I learned at KTI I apply to my job. The best thing I have learned is how to be more responsible.
Desiree Dalton '08
Professional Massage Therapy Specialist – Owner and Massage Therapist at Articulate Touch
I opened up my own business, Articulate Touch. Everything I learned in school I offer here. What I wanted to get out of Keystone Technical Institute was to get a great education but also to move forward with becoming well-rounded and settled with who I am, doing something that I’m passionate about that allows me to be with my children as well. I feel complete after getting my degree at KTI.

I love the steady hours of being a dental assistant and knowing what they expect of me. I can plan my life. The patients are so nice. I see them regularly and get to learn things about them and their family. You have to care about the patients to be in this field.
I feel like my life’s progressing forward. I’m making more money, and I’m becoming better at what I do. Going back to school at KTI helped move my life in the right direction!
Stephen Colston '14
Culinary Arts Specialist – Executive Chef at Colonial Lounge
Before I started at KTI, I was in and out of jobs and not going anywhere. I decided I wanted to make a career out of something. It was very professional here in class, with a very wide range of foods that we went through. KTI definitely helped prepare me. I’m an executive chef now. KTI definitely helped prepare me for what I’m doing now. I really enjoy what I’m doing.

Computer, Network and Cloud Technologies – IT Administrator at Hebron, Inc.
The teachers here are the best teachers in the world. They support you for what you’re doing and push you to make you understand what you’re doing will help you in the long run. I couldn’t ask for anything better. Without KTI, I would still be struggling. And I’m not anymore. I get paid a nice salary. I’m home every night by 6:00. My life is great.
Amy Warfel '07
Expanded Function Dental Assistant (EFDA) – EFDA at Halifax Dental Center
I started as a receptionist, and then became a Dental Assistant. The doctor sent me to get my EFDA. We had another KTI graduate who told us about their EFDA program, and we thought it would be great to take things further. I was nervous about going back to school since it had been a while, but it went very well. Everybody at KTI was really nice, and the students were great, too. The things I learned at KTI were very applicable to my career. KTI is a great school! The teachers know their stuff, and they make learning fun. Going back to school has made me much more valuable, so it was very worth it.
