Know your financial limitations and seek ways to minimize the debt you incur while pursuing your education. Once you are done, the amount you owe can adversely limit your career options.


My road in life took a while to figure out.
Fell in love with my Political Science course in high school.
Hospitalized the day of high school graduation for several weeks and had multi-year lasting negative effects. Moved to a new city with no friends or support due to illness.
Found a community college to attend after high school nearby.
Transferred to 4 year college to major in Political Science.
Graduated with bachelors in 4 years but hated 1st job out of college and felt extremely lost.
Family friend referred me to an alternative teaching program that required me to start my Masters.
Loved teaching and led to a referral for a counseling job.
Counseling job has since turned into other licenses that allow me to work outside of school in different capacities.
Keep following my journey
