About Me

I am a senior at Belleville East High School. I work a bunch of hours at Fletcher’s Kitchen and Tap. I have always thought it would be neat to have my own business.   Ever since I have been working closely with the owner of Fletcher’s, Derek Betz, I have wanted to be an entrepreneur. He has shown me how to make money and have fun with a business. I plan to attend University of Illinois to study in the business field.
