What advice would you give to someone who's considering finishing their degree, or starting for the first time as an adult?
Give it a try! If it turns out that the program you are looking at is not for you, then at least you know. But you won't know unless you try. You deserve it.
What are your favorite activities when you are not working?
My husband and I enjoy taking our three kids back to our hometown of Buffalo, New York to enjoy the friends, family, and everything that we experienced growing up. Conversely, I also enjoy hosting friends and family that want to escape snowy Buffalo by visiting the warmth and wonderfulness of New Orleans.
