I graduated high school and went on to UCSB for 2 years. At that time, I started working in the nursery business and was learning so much more than I had in college that I dropped out to pursue a career. I have never regretted that decision. In my second career in non-profit, I was self-taught and got positions, not because I had a college degree, but by showing that I had job experience and a willingness to learn.
At People Helping People in Solvang, I taught myself QuickBooks because a bookkeeping position was available and in another agency, I provided financial oversight and management. I found that I have an aptitude for computer and printer installation, as well as computer repair and maintenance.
I taught documentation techniques to staff therapists who had Masters Degrees and provided quality assurance for clinical notes.
My motto in life has always been "Just because I don't know how to do it, doesn't mean that it can't be done." I pride myself in being a life-long learner.
