I have wanted to be a Dental Hygienist for 20 years! As we all know life takes all kinds of interesting paths and sometimes they are not the ones we had planned for ourselves. I am a single mom of two teenage boys and had been taking pre-req’s for hygiene at night after my full time job. I had applied for three years to other schools as was never accepted. I decided that third year that maybe it wasn’t meant to be because I had given this dream everything I had in me. Carrington College was my life raft…they accepting me into their Hygiene Program. I could not have asked for a better lesson to show my young men what true hard work and perseverence looks like and that no matter what your dream may be there is always a way as long as you never give up.
