Haggerty most recently worked as a project administrator and business development specialist with MacDonald-Bedford LLC, a service-disabled-veteran-certified company providing architectural, engineering and construction consultation services.

Although individual counseling is free, each workshop costs $40 ($30, if four or more workshops in the PTAC series are purchased. All workshops will be held at the UNF University Center on the UNF campus.
