Getting Your Degree – without losing your mind is for people who think they might want to go back to school but aren’t quite sure how to go about it. It’s filled with nuts-and-bolts information, tips to make the experience easier (and more fun), and loads of encouragement from someone who’s been in the educational trenches herself.
About Facilitator Sheila Stone: As a single parent, Sheila Stone thought that getting a degree was beyond her reach. Then her youngest son started community college, the oldest left for university, and she was faced with the inevitable empty nest. That was the impetus she needed to start her own educational journey at age 48. She graduated Magna cum Laude from UCLA in 2005…one year behind her oldest son and a year ahead of her youngest. A couple of years later, she got her MA from Leeds Beckett University in England. She now owns Britain Your Way Tours and Women Sharing Cultures – travel companies creating small group, leisurely-paced tours with a focus on connecting travelers with the cultures they came to see.
