Schooling after cancer


Married for 22 years, I am a stay at home mother with three kids and am also currently home schooling two of the three.

The beginning of higher education

In 2011, I was diagnosed with stage 0 breast cancer...It was found with my first mammogram and no bigger than that of a grain of salt...I was livid because I wanted to start back to school and finish my education, but when I finish surgeries and 6 rounds of chemotherapy, began my IT degrees. First was my applied science associates in Network System Administration. The second a software development degree. Below is my journey

higher education

In 2012 I began my IT journey at ITT Technical Institute in Madison, Alabama. I started the Network Systems Administration (NSA) degree. This degree took me seven quarters to complete. Upon finishing the NSA Applied Science Associates, I then began my Applied Science Software Development Degree which took me roughly a year to complete and graduated in 2015.
