I came to Herzing at the age of 23. I wanted to be able to go to school in just 2 years and be done. I knew that I did not want to do hard labor for the rest of my life, but that seemed to be where I was going. I always thought I was not smart enough for the dental hygiene program. However, that was not the case at all. My family, teacher and fellow students were a tremendous support. I just needed to apply myself at Herzing, and it has paid off. I love it, and I love my job!
