  • It feels like the decisions you make right now will dictate what you will be doing for the rest of your life and that is not so. A liberal arts education teaches you how to learn so you can continue to learn and grow for the rest of your life. There are seasons to life and you can redirect yourself to follow your passion at any time. I have been a non-profit fund raiser, a mom, a sign language interpreter and event planner. To every thing there is a season.
