(AA Liberal Arts)

I returned to school when my youngest child was in high school. A great counselor at College of the Desert named "Sandy" encouraged me the whole way to hang in there quoting, "you are never too old." The great teaching staff at COD made every subject interesting and exciting on a daily basis. I wanted to give back to the community and teach young children so my goal was to obtain a teaching credential. After graduating from College of the Desert I went on to a 4 year university obtaining a Bachelor's degree.

I created my own company, Nanny Advice 4 You, and now do child consulting to new parents undertaking the road to parenthood. In my spare time l design and create children's apparel for my other company Kid Babies designs.

In the end I say thank you College of the Desert for the opportunity to realize my dreams.
