    I thought going into my MBA it would reinforce things I had already learned, but it also opened up new ways of thinking.

    My desire to go back to school was personal. Both my mom and dad graduated from high school, and I’m the first in my family to go on for my college education. I want to be a positive role model for my children. I can do all three – work, family and school; I didn’t have to choose.
