When I was spat out into the world at 18, I was terrified. I never had any real guidance throughout high school and even though I had always been told I should go to college, no one had told me how- so I didn't. But I have always loved learning, and much of what I have learned, I've learned by finding innovative ways to access information for free. I spent a lot of time in libraries as a young adult. (I still do as a not-as-young adult.) When I waited tables in my early career- I used to beg the bus people, other servers, and food runners at the restaurant to let me have their old textbooks after their semester finished. Then, after my shift ended, I would go home and spend my nights reading those textbooks and doing all the assignments. When I felt that I had the schedule and the financial ability to safely enroll, I finally did.
I am a first- generation college student hellbent on showing the world why you should bet on the scrapper.
A few years ago, I completed my associates in Liberal Arts. Currently, I am enrolled in three different colleges working towards three different degrees: a Bachelors of the Arts in Organizational Leadership at Arizona State University, a Bachelors of Science in Human Resource Management at Champlain College, and a second associates degree at Community College of Vermont in Behavioral Sciences. My goal is pursue a masters degree at the conclusion of my bachelors degrees.
I am also trained from an accredited Enneagram school on the Enneagram, a personality typing system, and Enneagram coaching. I am currently working towards accreditation for myself. In addition, I am working towards integrative wellness coaching through the University of Vermont and preparation for certification through the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaches (NBHWC).
My educational journey is long and varied and never-ending. The desire for personal and professional growth are staples of my personality and I am constantly following curiosity to learn more about myself and my strengths and discover ways to help myself and others grow in ways I wasn't aware of before.
