What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?

I have always wanted to teach. After completing 23 years as a Personnel Administrator in the Air Force, and working an additional 9 years for the federal government, I would like to give back by teaching part-time at the local community college.

Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?

I was inspired to consider Averett’s GPS Program while attending freshman orientation with my son. My first conversation with the GPS staff confirmed, Averett’s GPS Program was the one for me. I felt I could be successful, and even if I got a little discouraged there would be resources and personnel available to help me.

Please share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:

Don’t give up on your dreams because all things are possible if you believe.

What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?

The things that have kept me motivated during this program are my faith, my awesome family, and my AU family and friends.

What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?

Averett University, Class of 2018!
