Short Autobiography:††††††† I am originally from Madawaska. I moved to Fort Kent the end of my freshmen year of high school. I graduated high school in 1994 and did one year of college at UMFK. I transferred downstate to Casco Bay College for one year while living in Old Orchard Beach. As much as I loved living in that area, I ended up moving back up to Fort Kent to complete my Associates Degree and begin a life with my now husband. I have worked all my life, until I had an accident in August 2011 that had me laid up in bed for almost six months. After I had been out of work for twelve weeks, I was sent a termination letter in the mail from my employer.Once I received the okay from my physician to work again, I applied for every job possible in this little town (26 jobs to be exact) and only landed one interview.Although the potential employer was impressed with my interview and my credentials, they would not hire me due to the requirement of having a Bachelorís Degree upon hiring, hence why I returned to college. My goal is to have my own online payroll bookkeeping service once I graduate in May 2015 so I can help provide for my family!
