While raising my four wonderful children, I ran a successful boarding and grooming business for over 18 years. At that time, I decided to make a change, and in 2020, I took a medical transcription course, which led me to apply to The Disc Clinic and being hired for the front desk position. I now work at The Disc Clinic part time and transcribe medical reports. I am an avid reader, and strongly believe in continuing education at any age and never being too old to make changes!
