An alumna explains how her degree has transformed her into an effective writer, communicator, and leader.

NAME: Robin Nauseef-Cataldo ’11

DEGREE EARNEDMS in Leadership

CURRENT JOB: Controller and human resources manager at Applied Concepts in Tully, N.Y.

HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT WALDEN? I received a postcard in the mail immediately after I finished a two-year community leadership program. I felt strongly that this was a message that I was supposed to continue my education.

WHEN DID YOU KNOW THAT WALDEN WAS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR YOU? When I received positive and encouraging feedback from professors, and classmates were very positive and encouraging. I learned that I was an effective writer and communicator. I think that was my defining moment, to hear a professor tell me I had these abilities. It gave me so much courage.

WHAT DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE PROGRAM? The most significant take away is the confidence I gained. The support of the professors and of my peers enabled me to not only apply what I learned at Walden to my current job as controller/human resources manager but to also seek out additional opportunities as an entrepreneur and volunteer in my community.

WHY DO YOU REFER OTHERS TO WALDEN? My experience at Walden challenged me to use what I learned to make a difference in my community. I now feel very strongly about effecting positive social change. I am currently working to create a partnership among parents, educators, and other community members in our school district to increase student achievement and success. Walden offers a unique perspective to higher education. Its focus on creating positive social change was significant for me, which is why I refer everyone I can—friends who have asked about my program, co-workers, employees, and anyone who wants to continue their education.
