“Before pursing my MBA, I knew that I wanted to have a leadership role at an agency that helps domestic violence victims and survivors.  I achieved this goal shortly after I graduated with my MBA. Currently, I’m a Supervisor at a non-profit organization that helps families impacted by domestic violence.”

“Being a first-generation college student, and now a first-year doctoral student; I have a responsibility to show my four children the way and help them understand the "why" along with the "how".  I am able to better achieve my professional goals thanks to the support I have received from HPGM…I take pride in sharing knowledge by actively participating in the work of HPGM; especially as it relates to developing relationships and talent. The support I have received from HPGM has assisted me in achieving my educational goals and I believe it is necessary for me to pay it forward within our community and future generations.”
