  • NO. I didn't do college after high school, so I worked dead end jobs for 20 years. Now I am in college and getting a degree in Human Services and AODA Rehab (Alcohol and other Drug Abuse Rehab). My goal is to be an adolescent and teen drug and alcohol counselor.

  • No, I am a Cosmetologist and have worked labor jobs for almost 20 years. :-) The good thing is my kids and SO have never had to go to a salon and it has paid for itself.
