How did you first become interested in your field of study?

I entered healthcare as a nurse. I wanted to advance my career and decided that a business degree would complement my nursing background well.

Describe your career path since graduating from McKendree.

Since graduation I've been able to successfully move from mid-level management positions to executive leadership roles within several organizations.

What impact has your degree had on your life or career?

Having a degree opens the door to new opportunities. It would have been impossible to advance within healthcare without completing my education. The investment has resulted in a return greater than I ever imagined.

What is the best career advice you have received?

Make the most of every opportunity. Your education may get you the opportunity, but how you perform will ultimately determine where your career goes.

What are your hobbies?

In my spare time I love reading, camping, and spending time with my family.
