            1989-1993, B.A.

            Well I am a big city fast track bohemian kind of girl and I had just had a fun filled time getting my first degree in Atlanta. Decided to get a more serious degree, and thought I would do this at home in Miami, but my mother lived here, and informed me that it was a school near her in NC or figure out how to pay for it myself. SHOCK or the system! Found Salem by getting lost, signed up by the end of the day, loved every single minute, and I learned an incredible amount the classes are small the faculty is awesome, the equipment is state of art the assoc. with the local hospitals is of utmost importance to a medical career. Salem Sisters are strong incredible women , proud to be one.
