Marching Forward

This post is long overdue, but better late than never.

Over the last few months, I accepted a position at George Mason University and graduated with my M. Ed. in Higher Education Administration from North Carolina State University. It’s been an eventful couple of months than included a move, starting a new job, going to a wedding, and actively enjoying life.

As for my new position, I went into the on campus interview very positive about my brief interactions with people at The Placement Exchange back in March and I was excited when that positivity continued while interviewing for the position. I liked meeting everyone and there was an energy about the department and institution that attracted me. I got a call from the search committee chair the day after the interview with a verbal offer and I decided to accept the position.

Now, in the middle of training, I can still say that I’m proud of my decision and I’m happy that I’m working at George Mason University.

The Saturday following my interview was graduation (as well as closing for my residence hall). My grandparents, mom, and brother came down to help me celebrate the accomplishment. It also made me reflect on how much I have grown as a professional and a person throughout graduate school thanks to great peers, an awesome supervisor, and excellent professors. I’ll always be grateful for my experience at North Carolina State University. Thank you to everyone who was a part of my experience, we will not lose touch!
