    I’m disabled now but I worked in customer service and collections for over 25 years. I worked doing collections for the Government Travel card for 10 years and loved my job. Then I went to work for the Arizona Department of Revenue for 5 years. My mother was fighting stage 4 cancer in several places and it was so hard taking care of her and trying to support myself and young son at the time. Ive been out of work for about 6 years now and Forensic Science has been coming up in listings I’ve been checking. It has caught my attention and has made me very curious to learn more about it.
