Espinal and her daughter


Scholarship recipient learns it's never too late to pursue your passions


“When my daughter grows up and learns my story, she will see I had the courage to start making the changes needed regardless of where I was in my life,” says Espinal. “I wanted to show her it’s never too late.”

Espinal had worked in the dental field for more than 20 years, first as a dental assistant and then as a regional manager, when she started to reflect on her career path and plan for her family’s future.

“I decided to go back to school because I wanted to do something impactful,” reflects Espinal. “I wanted to work directly with patients and also provide a more stable future for my daughter.”

Balancing life as a single mother, a student, and an employee comes with its struggles, but Espinal credits her family, classmates, and professors for helping her achieve her goals.

 “Regis is a supportive environment that makes success more attainable,” says Espinal. “My professors show tough love but understand the demands I have, and my classmates are truly one of a kind—everyone is rooting for me to succeed.”

Her scholarship support is another key motivator. As the recipient of the Hannah Bradley Endowed Scholarship and the Honey Shames Dental Hygiene Scholarship, Espinal finds inspiration and hope knowing that others believe in her.

“My scholarships changed my life, and I would not have been able to finance my education without this generous support,” Espinal says. “I know I have to work hard to make the most of this opportunity.”
