Associate Dean of Admissions
Midway College has been a part of my life since 2000. My roles have ranged from student (graduating class of 2004) to instructor (Equine Studies) to Admissions Counselor (Day and SCD) and now Director (SCD Evening program) Over the years, I have come to appreciate the unique attitude and commitment that Midway College shows towards the education of all types of students. After completing bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration and Equine Studies through Midway’s traditional Women’s College, I felt that another educational step was necessary. I enrolled in an evening master’s program in business through a local institution, and was faced with one of the hardest educational experiences in my life. I had to balance a full-time job with attending class three times per week in order to complete my MBA in two years! As a working adult it was very hard to keep focused on three different classes at once while maintaining a full-time job. I can appreciate the cohort format Midway uses, allowing students to focus on one class at a time. Currently I am continuing to pursue my educational goals with a master’s degree in International Relations. My situation is similar to many of the SCD students: juggling a full-time job and family commitments while completing graduate studies at night. It is this personal experience that helps me support and empathize with students preparing to study in the School for Career Development.
