student testimonial

Our visit at the Bellus Academy in Poway was absolutely lovely! We had a nice tour of the facility and spoke with a few of the advanced students and instructor about what you are doing there with the advanced program. It is very impressive! Mom is coming back for Oxygen treatments, I think she has one scheduled tomorrow. She has pass along the word to all of her friends in Poway.
Now I need to finish my paperwork and get that over to you so we can start working together on the Externship program.
Thanks again!"
