More About Ms. Stacie's Education

My background is very diverse, as I was a late bloomer, educationally speaking. It wasn't until I was expecting my first child at age 23 that I braved my first college experience at Pikes Peak Community College (now known as Pikes Peak State College. High school had been a difficult life experience for me, and I did not have encouragement or support to invest in my education.

When I started college, I fell in love with learning in a way I'd never experienced before. Each new class led me to an undiscovered adventure, making it difficult to choose just one path. As a result, I have more than 250 college credit hours and many additional trainings. The following are some of the subjects I have pursued along my educational journey. Not all resulted in degrees, but much was always learned:

  1. Computer Information Systems

  2. Humanities

  3. Chemistry (Associates of Science earned through Pikes Peak Community College)
