I have large gaps in my employment history due to taking time out to be a full time mom. I have three boys and have been married for 16 years to my husband. My oldest child lives with high-functioning autism and seeing to his development was my highest priority. After all of my children entered school for the entire day I began my online adventure in college. I am a dedicated individual and do not take on things that I cannot complete and do well. While in college I have maintained my GPA at a 3.1+ through many challenges; caring for my mother in law out of state dying of cancer, two children in the juvenile justice system following an assault, caring for my grandmother with dementia, and whatever else life could hurl my way. I am also actively seeking acceptance into a Master’s program for my MSW degree.
