"I've learned so much and am eager to work with my new team and lead them with my ethical values. Below is a summary of my career journey and a photo in case you need it. Thank you for all your continuous support and guidance!

"I began my journey in the nonprofit sector five years ago as a case manager for a housing program. My interest in wanting to become a leader started there! Deciding to enroll in the APU MPA program to start my journey not only to further my education but also to find my spiritual journey. I now practice my everyday life with God guiding me toward making ethical decisions based on morals and values. The values that this university has taught me helped me grow into my career path in management. As a leader, I now have a responsibility to lead my team with dignity and respect."
