Going back to school at age 48 was difficult. If it were not for my husband, daughter Claudia, and the support of my Clerk Yvette Taylor, I would have never made it. “What can I learn about Human Resources after already being in this career for 30 years?” I thought to myself. Well I am here to tell you that we are never too educated, too experienced or too old to learn. My experience in the last two years has been immeasurable and has taught me that I can do what I put my mind to as long as I was dedicated. Thanks to the help, dedication and sacrifices made by my family I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Human Resources, Cum Laude this past December.
