I know that through having my master’s in business administration I’m going to be able to continue to climb up the ladder and continue to guide and lead others to do the work that they do. I believe I’m making a bigger impact by being a leader.
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.
Going back to school helped me get out of my comfort zone. It helped me get past the ‘we’ve always done it that way’ mentality. I learned that I needed to innovate personally, professionally and to help other become more innovative.
