Katie Heatley '10 Photography & '11 Massage Therapy
Self-employed Photographer, Massage Therapist & Yoga Teacher

"I am a photographer, artist, massage therapist and yoga instructor. At TTC, I gained life-long friends, c***ections with my professors and two careers that give me the flexibility to enjoy my life the way I want to live. I received the Merit award in 2010 with the photography department and graduated Cum Laude. I have had ups and downs as a small business owner, but always learning something new every day. I've captured many sessions for families, individuals and weddings with my portrait photography. I recently crossed over into the fine art photography world, having photos exhibited three years in a row at Piccolo Spoleto (City Gallery) and twice at the MOJA Arts Fest. I'm apart of the South Carolina's Artisan's Center as well and now back at my alma mater teaching along side some of my former instructors. My Massage Therapy career has allowed me to have an alternate option when there are slower seasons. I taught with the program back in 2013 for a couple of years and joined the American Massage Therapy Association where I volunteered with my state chapter. I held several positions, with the last being AMTA-SC President for 4 years, helping to put on education events for LMTS in our state and working with our State Board on our Massage Bill. I also contract with the WTA as a LMT with some of their tennis tournaments for their athletes. I've gained so many c***ections over the years and am grateful for the opportunities that I've been able to experience. I feel this would not be possible if I did not take the TTC path that I did."

South Carolina Healthy Business Challenge - a team from TTC, led by the InterTech Wellness Center Director, Marianne Weinstein, participated in the SC7 Cooper River Bridge Hike with the Mayors! ( John Tecklenburg, Mayor of Charleston and Will Haynie, Mayor of Mt. Pleasant). Groups from each side of the bridge met in the middle. Everyone was glad for an overcast day.

SOUTH CAROLINA SC7 is a partnership between two South Carolina based non-profit organizations, Global Eco Adventures and the South Carolina National Heritage Corridor. The mission of SC7 is to get people in the outdoors so they gain an appreciation for the outdoors, and therefore begin to actively do their part to protect the outdoors.

ALUMNI UPDATE: Martha McCarley '15 Culinary Arts
Food Operations Manager

"Attending Trident Tech was one of the best decisions of my life. I moved to Charleston in 2012 and over the course of three years I was inspired every day by the CIC department. They became my family and support as I worked my way through college. I have many fond memories of working with CIC at the Charleston Wine and Food Festival, A Night in the Valley fundraiser, Chef’s Feast, Wine Under the Oaks, and many more. It was difficult supporting myself through college but I was even able to save enough money to go on a food photography study abroad trip to Florence, Italy. Since graduating, I have traveled to various states and worked in many different hospitality venues. Currently I work for Sodexo as a Food Operations Manager at Marine Corp Bogue Airfield in Cape Carteret, supporting the Marine Wing Support Squadron 271. Not only am I able to work in a field that I love, but I also feel that I am serving my country in my own small way. Trident Tech helped make my dream a reality."


Congratulations to alum, Michael Kahly, who is the new Director of Infrastructure Services at the college.

Mike is a TTC graduate who received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Citadel. He has served as the Operations manager within Enterprise Services since joining the College in 2016. In 2021, Mike was awarded the SC Technical Education Association Administrator Educator of the Year award and is an adjunct instructor for Network Systems Management.

An Army veteran who has worked for several defense contractors, Mike is actively involved in Keep Hanahan Beautiful, Walk for Autism – Charleston, and SCDVA Palmetto Pathfinder program.

"Trident Tech was critical for me in gaining a step up towards the creative careers I am interested in. I had such enthusiastic professors who made me eager to learn, and even at the beginning of the pandemic, the school was there with alternative learning opportunities and extra help for those who needed it. My biggest obstacle was trying to finish school while working 50-60 hours a week, but the access to online schoolwork made it easy to get both jobs done."

"A month before I started at TTC, I had to have surgery and thought it would be hard recovering and attending class. It wasn’t at all. The professors I had, Mr. Bowler and Ms. LeaMond, were the most knowledgeable and passionate about their job and teaching it. I learned a lot and loved every minute."

Congratulations to TTC Alum, Lindsay Grooms!

Congratulations to Ms. Lindsay Grooms, GIS Analyst with the Assessor's Office, who was awarded the Employee of the Quarter. Ms. Grooms is considered one of the best employees with Dorchester County Government. She always goes above and beyond and is always there to help. She is very knowledgeable and an asset to the County.

Most recently during the tax bill preparation, Lindsay was instrumental to the Stormwater and Solid Waste User Fees Program. Due to some changes that took place, Lindsay spent numerous hours pulling reports and providing information that she was not responsible for. She did so to help her colleagues and to support the Stormwater Department. Without her long hours and commitment to Dorchester County, employees would still be working on the project.

Lindsay is also a graduate of the first cohort of the County's Leadership Apprenticeship Program and recently celebrated her 21st work anniversary with Dorchester County!
