“My favorite thing about Averett has been the people I have met along the way including the faculty and staff. The professors and advisors truly care to see you succeed.” – Jessica Tate, MBA
Jessica has been an emergency nurse at Sovah Health in Martinsville, VA for over 12 years, where she is currently the clinical manager of emergency services. She met her husband, Aaron, of 23 years while serving in the United States Navy. The couple has two daughters, Lindsey and McKenzie. Jessica loves to travel with her family and takes advantage of doing so anytime they can, trying to travel to a new place each year. While not traveling, working or busy with schoolwork she likes to watch reality TV and read to de-stress.
She chose to attend Averett Online to receive her MBA due to a friend recently graduating and highly recommending the program to her. Her favorite thing about the program was being given the opportunity to choose the amount and type of classes that she wanted to take each term.
