Growing up, I was always fascinated with horses. This fascination led to my decision to chase my lifelong dream of working with children and horses. To be able to do what I love, and get paid for it, an education is the single most important step to take.

My maxim is “knowledge is power.” I believe all experiences throughout life provide knowledge that will be empowering for future events. Always strive to seek out new knowledge, gain new insights, and explore new opportunities.

There were several reasons I decided to go back to school. As a mother of four children, I wanted to set a good example for my children so they would understand the value of education. I wanted to achieve something I had waited twenty years to do.
