Career advancement would not have been possible without earning my degree at Walden University. Acquiring the tools I need to be successful while conducting scholarly work has allowed me to see my career in education from a more global viewpoint and approach problems with new and different solutions.
I am a first-generation college graduate. By earning my degree, I’ve set a positive example for my son. I know I’ve shown him that he can do anything.
My degree from Walden has certainly opened doors for me and created opportunities I might not otherwise have had.
Now that I’ve earned my Ed.D. from Walden, I can really effect positive social change and build bridges between mothers and healthcare professionals. I love what I do.
