I came from a pretty broken home. I experienced a lot of shitty things as a child. Death of a father, molestation, grieving mother. Due to these things I had some issues, addiction to alcohol, and me. I married young and started having kids. We were pretty dysfunctional. I was stuck for 20 years completely reliant upon a man. We had problems amongst ourselves and it affected our kids. We pulled them from school young because we weren't able to handle the responsibilities. I struggled for many years until I got the courage to walk away. I had to leave my kids as I was never the breadwinner and couldn't provide for the kids on my own. So for the next 8 years I've struggled on my own but I finally decided I needed something more, something better when I started seeing my kids struggling with addiction.So I signed myself up for the Excel center again and honestly took this course because it's the only one that was available. It wasn't until I started the course that I realized how much I love it! I always knew I wanted to work in the medical field but don't like bodily fluids and this puts me where I feel I belong. In the future I have two goals. I would love to work for KLR and help other people succeed and thrive. I love the idea of helping people realize their goals and that they can do hard things also. My Other idea or possible goal is to work at St Vincent in Anderson inpatient for a minimum of a year so I can move into a military hospital setting somewhere near the ocean. My other goals include being a better mother, visiting Morocco, buying real estate and having passive income. I want to live the rest of my life to my fullest potential while giving it my all. I got so much from this class. I Feel so blessed to have been able to attend this class and meet all of you. If it weren't for you, Katie, Daniel, Brent, and Shawna I don't think I could have succeeded. It really showed me what I'm capable of doing and that I matter and I CAN DO HARD THINGS!!
