Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
Began college as an early childhood education student but discovered it wasn't the career for me.
Became very involved in campus life working in different roles; took on leadership positions.
Decided to pursue a Master's to become more educated about the field I wanted to pursue.
Went to a grad school opposite of my undergrad so I could gain experience at a different school.
