Hello! My Name Is…
Hello. My name is Jessica Dixon. I have been in Danville, VA my whole life. I received my education in county schools. I’m a mother of 2 handsome boys Davon and Dezmon who bring so much joy to my life each and every day. I’m employed at Nestle here in Danville, VA. I’ve been employed at Nestle since October 2016.
What is your motivation for obtaining your degree here at Averett University?
My children are my motivation for obtaining my degree. I want to set the right example for them, and let them know that whatever they set their mind to do, they can do it, and I’ll always be their biggest supporter. I also like to challenge myself, and set goals for myself. I have set my mind on getting my degree and I will not stop until I follow through with my number one goal.
Why did you choose Averett University’s Graduate & Professional Studies program?
I’ve always heard great things about Averett University. I know a few students that attend Averett, and that have also graduated from here. So I decided this is the school for me. Business is the program that I decided to pursue here at Averett. I was excited to find out that Averett offered great online classes, and that is very convenient for me being a 3rd shift worker and raising my children.
