What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?
When I was hired into the Business Office at Danville Regional Medical Center, I fell in love with the aspects of my job. I knew I wanted to learn as much as I could about the business side of things and I knew by bettering my education I would have a greater chance of doing that.
Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?
I chose the GPS Program at Averett because I received my Bachelor’s degree there and I had a great experience. I knew it was a top quality place with skilled professors and I knew I would get a great higher education again.
Please share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:
The best tip I can give is to create a structure for yourself. Allot time for work, family, school, and personal time. Maintaining a structure for myself has really helped me in not feeling too overwhelmed.
What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?
Support from the people around me really keeps me going. Motivation from my family, friends, co-workers and fellow students drives me. Knowing I have so many people in my corner makes we want to make them proud.
What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?
Averett University, Class of 2018
