Senovita earned her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene at The University of Southern California, where she became both a Lecturer and Instructor in the USC Department of Dental Hygiene. She remained an integral member of the department while working towards her master’s degree in Leadership and Organizational Studies at Azusa Pacific University.
