Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
Joined the US Air Force out of high school.
Moved around which resulted in delays in achieving educational goals.
Left a nursing program after being transferred to a state that would not take the transfer credits.
Transferred overseas and changed my undergraduate major to Asian Studies.
Continued for a graduate degree that was not related to my career.
Several failed attempts to change careers.
Found a career that was a good balance between my professional experience and academic interests.
Desired to finish a PhD. I thought it was impossible due to the mobile nature of my career. However, I found WaldenU and the rest is history.
