She also visited three schools that offered this certificate. Robin stated, "By going through the process I was able to gain a lot of good information in the the baking / pastry chef field. I recommend going this route for anyone who wants job training or is thinking about starting a new career.

Robin was referred to a Case Manager at Golden Sierra to complete her training plans.
