Better Late than Never

/ Student / Dental Assisting

Posted on January 30, 2012

I am 43 years old and I am in the Dental assisting program. It has been such a rewarding experience for me. I have been in the food industry since I was 16 and I have done everything from waitress to General Manager. I am a single mom and my son is 8 years old and I wanted to give him more security then I can offer as it is now and realized no matter how good I am in that industry its just a job and not a career. Being in a customer service setting like food service means working weekends and Holidays which has taken time away from my son. I did a lot of research on the schools in this area and am so glad I choose Carrington to give me a new career path. I have three weeks left of classes and am so grateful to my instructors especially Ms. Yang who has helped make this transition so wonderful. It was not easy to go back to school after all these years and I feel I am ready for the next challenge in my life. thank you
