I have been fortunate in my life to have had teachers, family, and friends who breathed positive reinforcement into my life. Service to others has been a natural pillar for me as a Girl Scout, a tutor, a coach, and a confidant. My desire to minister to and support others, coupled with my optimism, makes a business degree focusing on human capital management a perfect fit. This degree will fulfill career aspirations and also answer a vocational calling to serve others by recognizing potential.
