Rachel Woods didn’t have the resources--or the time--to invest 8+ years in an advanced medical degree.
A mother of 3, she was already “in the trenches” of real life struggling to make ends’ meet when she decided she had to make a change.
“I just got tired of bouncing around from food service jobs to retail jobs,” she says. “Everything was a dead end.”
That was despite having graduated with an associates degree in social work from Southwestern Illinois College.
