What is the best career decision  you’ve made?

To get a Ph.D. with a research emphasis, which led to a career in institutional research and planning in higher education.

If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently?

Perhaps I would have taken more advanced statistics courses because it would have helped early in my career.  However, those courses were not necessary as I advanced into management positions.

How have women helped further your career?

I received encouragement early on when teaching part-time from the program director.  At each place I worked, I had a network of women co-workers and we supported each other.  I was hired at one institution by a woman administrator who supported me in my career and is a very good friend.  Participating in professional organizations, including the Women Administrators in NC Higher Education, provided a network of support across the state.  I collaborated with a female colleague of mine on research projects.
