Hi, and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am excited to get started with you.

You can reset your keychains by removing the keychain files from your Library folder. To do so, follow these instructions:
1. Click on Finder (happy face icon)
2. From the top menu, choose Go and select Go to folder. Paste this inside and press Go. ~/Library
3. Within the Library folder, locate the Keychains folder
4. Drag all the contents inside that folder into the trash. Do not delete the folder itself
5. Lastly, click on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner and type in Disk Utility
6. Select Macintosh HD in the left column and then choose Repair permission. After it is complete, restart you computer. When you log back in, it will ask you to enter your login keychain password. Enter you Admin password ***** it will store it.
