▪️Cozette dropped out of college at 21 when she and her husband were expecting their first child. After working in fast food, cleaning, retail and administration jobs, she decided at 41 that she was going back to school.
▫️She always loved helping her dad fix things as a child and so she decided to pursue a degree in Automotive.
▪️Being twice the age of her classmates as a little scary but two years later she graduated with an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
▫️While in school, she worked with a friend in his small automotive business where she gained a lot of experience that the classroom did not provide.
▪️Cozette found it difficult to break into the local industry as a middle aged woman. She found herself back in college going for her Bachelor of Applied Science Degree with the hopes of becoming an Associate Professor in the department.
▫️She had secured a position managing the tool room in two shops. As well as taking care of fleet management four their Peace Officers Academy Vehicles.
▪️Currently, in addition to working on the degree, and working in the shops, she is also an Adjunct Professor in the Automotive program. She is halfway to her ASS Master Mechanic Certification.
