Hello Instructor Bailey and Classmates!

I am from central Illinois and have lived here my entire life. I have had the opportunity to travel to many other states throughout my life and hope to someday live on the west coast. I am the very lucky mother of two wonderful and very busy children. Gage is ten and Gabriella is seven. They are amazing children but they definitely keep me on my toes!

I am working towards my Bachelor Degree in Applied Behavioral Science for a couple different reasons. The initial reason for going back to school and getting my degree was to show my children how important an education is and to give them a better life than jobs at minimum wage will provide. After I decided to go back to school, I decided that this was the field that most interests me and that will allow me to help others in my community.
