During the 17 years I worked as an emergency responder, one of my biggest strengths was putting patients at ease and helping them to push fear aside as they faced an unexpected illness or injury. I utilize that same strength now as I help working adults navigate the uncertainties of returning to school while juggling the demands of family and career. There will be good days and there will be bad days. But the end result will be worth it. I have yet to meet anyone who regretted finishing their degree.

Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

People’s lives are busy with work and family so returning to school can seem daunting. Here’s what I did when I finished my MBA at Belhaven. I set a date with myself to study throughout the week. As I prepared my calendar for other social events I also included study time. This helped relieve my stress, knowing I did have time planned throughout the week for study. Belhaven University believes in every adult student. We’re here to help you reach you goal!

Psalm 103:1 - “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name.”
