We spoke with Sr. IT Project Manager Billy DeWalt about how he came to PRA. From overcoming military injuries to hitting his professional stride, Billy remains focused on the possible instead of the impossible. 'Throughout my time here, I’ve continued to build my skills and work towards my professional goals effectively and comfortably. I believe PRA is the gold standard for helping individuals become their best professional selves, and always looks to the possible instead of the impossible.” #ElevateDiversity #diversityandinclusion #DiversityEqualityInclusion
