"It's not often you get a chance for a fresh start at a meaningful and lasting career, especially at 40. Luckily, I've been offered an amazing opportunity - acceptance into the inaugural cohort of the MA in Nonprofit Management program here at Antioch University. This experience has opened my world not only to the invaluable experience of higher learning, but to a new network of socially responsible individuals who care and share in their everyday lives. I've leaped a step ahead toward my future and I look forward to the new pathways that result from this academic journey."
