The Detour is Over

Several years ago, an opportunity to further my education presented itself. I was all in. An opportunity through my employer, in cooperation with a local school with an amazing reputation? Yes, why not!? Between 2013 and 2014 I completed my Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Innovation Management. After the joyful day when I shook the hands of leaders from both organizations, I told myself, “this is it for now, I’m tired. I’m done for a while”.

Not too long after that joyful day, I was also promoted to a position with much more responsibility. I saw people around me going back to school, but I told myself it wasn’t right for me. I thought about going back to school quite a bit, but the timing and the programs never felt right, until now.

I’m back; the detour is over. Western Carolina offers such a great opportunity that seems to fit my personality and my needs. I have high hopes in the Masters of Entrepreneurship program. I am determined to fit the work around my already full schedule, I have hopes that other members of this program support one another, and I am ready to finish what I started back in 2013.
