"I got my undergraduate degree in communication, and I briefly did work in the field. I always had an interest in working with students and I didn't see that I was going to be able to cross paths if I kept in a career of communication so I took a leap of faith and went into education. I think taking a risk is what helped provide some of the reward I have. I could have just cautiously gone after what I know but I went into an area I didn't know much about and I think that's what contributed to my success."
