I looked at many different schools in the country. When I looked at the resumes of the teachers at Merryfield, they won hands down. There was no comparison. Now that I’m winning in my competitions! I can really see the difference my education made on my career.
I was a front desk Manager at an Animal Hospital, kind of a dead end job. I love animals and I wanted more fun in my job. I did my research, I interviewed the teachers at Merryfield and there was no doubt that this is where I needed to be. I’m a Graduate; I compete nationally and will get my Master Certification by the end of this year. I thank Merryfield for my outrageous career. I LOVE IT EVERY DAY!
