Pauline Hughes-Derome, Personal Support Worker student at Herzing College Ottawa
At 58 years old, Pauline Hughes-Derome figured it was too late to change careers. And at her age, she assumed going back to school wasn't even an option.
After all, she already had a stable job in accounting, years of business experience, and no reason to make a move.
But then everything changed when her sister got cancer, and Pauline became her primary care-giver.
