Hi, and thanks for stopping by my blog! For those who don’t know me, my name is Becca Heflin. I’m a 46-year old non-traditional student, attending the Appleton campus of Fox Valley Technical College.
After losing my job as a sales & customer service associate in September 2008, I found the job market very stale for people in my age bracket and with the limited education I had. After a year of unsuccessfully searching for new employment, I decided to shift my focus towards learning new skills while simultaneously pursuing my love for cooking and my passion of helping people. In August 2009, I began studies in the Culinary Arts and Hotel/Restaurant Management programs. I plan to graduate in December of 2011.
When I’m not at school or cooking up a storm in my tiny apartment kitchen, I enjoy spending time with my fiance, Brian. We love golfing, hiking through the woods of Door County, window shopping for great deals in downtown Appleton, and socializing with friends on Twitter and Facebook. I’m also the proud mom of a 24 year old daughter, an 18 year old son, and 2 cats.
