Once on campus, Parrino was emerged in the racing culture that has made Mooresville, N.C. famous. Between the classroom and internships with a number of local race teams and companies, Parrino was a full-fledged racing junkie.
Instructors took note of her skills and work ethic, and when JRi Shocks inquired about possible candidates for a new position, Parrino was highly recommended for the job.
"NASCAR Tech played a huge role in getting hired by JRi," said Parinno. "NASCAR Tech has connections, and in racing everyone knows everybody, so I can only imagine how many people they have helped directly."
As NASCAR Tech celebrates 10 years of starting careers, stories like Parrino's are becoming common.Parrino believes it takes passion and an open mind to be successful. "My advice to people is to try and not pigeon-hole themselves and experience it all," said Parrino. "A lot of people say they will only do one thing, and if they don't get that chance, they will be crushed." Parrino speaks from experience. "I didn't think I would be doing what I'm doing, but I realized I love it and I get to help so many people and make a difference in the company as it's growing. It means a lot."
