Scholarship Type: 
DTA Foundation/Robert J. Sullivan Family Foundation
Western University of Health Sciences

Mrs. Peterson was married and had a young son when she decided to go back to school, earn her undergraduate degree and then go on to dentistry where she felt she could give back to her community.

“I am proof that it is never too late to follow your dreams and I believe that no matter how old we are, we all have gifts that can be returned to our communities,” she said. “Now is my time to give back and scholarships allow me to pay off debt while helping those with the most need.”
