What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?

My daughters Emmery, 7, and Peyton, 5, are my motivation for obtaining my degree. We all do homework together where I stress the importance of education. I am showing them that it is never too late to achieve your goals and with hard work and dedication, the sky is the limit!

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

I have friends who graduated from Averett University in Danville and always heard great things about the school. When I decided to go back to pursue my degree, Averett’s GPS program was a no-brainer! Being in class with other adult students and some professors who were adult students themselves made the transition seamless.

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

Time management!!!  Set aside time for reading, homework and studying and be sure to stick to it!  As adult students, we have jobs, family and extracurricular activities therefore it is important to manage your time so nothing is left undone.

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

My family and classmates keep me motivated. I have a strong support system at home that helps with my home-life and an amazing group of classmates that push each other! Through phone calls, text messages, emails and study sessions, we support one another, one class at time!

What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?

Averett University, Class of 2019!
