In episode 18, we listen in to our May 2017 Polished Houston Luncheon featuring Angie Gillikin. 

Angie is a Manager in the Career Readiness Department at Houston ISD. She focuses on high school CTE programming and developing business partnerships to support CTE programs; with a goal to expose students to careers and opportunities in their CTE pathways. In her role, she organizes Houston ISD's annual When I Grow Up Career Expo and bi-monthly Chamber meetings with active business partners.

Angie is passionate about #equippingeducation and as a teacher used her 16 years of previous corporate experience to apply the "real world" in her CTE classrooms while also applying core academics resulting in students with both technical application and employability skills in addition to applied academics. 

Angie is active in the Houston community, and is completing her 13th year as a volunteer with Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo where she's a Vice Chairman and Captain on two committees. She is also the Houston Chapter Director for Polished and is currently pursuing a MBA at University of Houston Downtown.

Outside of work Angie enjoys blogging, creating lettered art, friends and family, and her rescue golden-doodle, Auggie.
