"I had attended Empire College and earned my associate degree in the 80s. I got a job right away, then started having babies. After that I worked as a server, but did not want to continue working nights and weekends. Since I was a child I have wanted to be in the medical field. Retraining for a career in health care was the best thing I have ever done. I got the best job in the world; I love it!"
