I was a young, single mother determined to beat the odds. Wright State allowed me to have the flexibility I needed to graduate with highest honors and raise my daughter. Now, I work for a Fortune 500 company in marketing and have my M.B.A.

Wright State is home! In 1993, I earned my B.S.E. Upon considering where to obtain my masters, I gravitated back to Wright State in 2000. For my administration license, I came here in 2007. Now, I work with Wright State student teachers in my school to pay it forward!
