Jeff understands the adult learning experience and the challenges and joys that come with earning a degree while being father, husband and full-time employee. He started his undergraduate degree at the age of 23 after a tour in the Marine Corps, marriage, and starting a family. (He finished that degree ten years later – let’s just say he took the scenic route!). So, he can identify with the late night cram sessions, the multiple pots of coffee consumed just to get through a final paper, or prepping for that dreaded final exam. He remembers vividly the challenges, but what he recalls most are the invaluable investments his instructors made that helped him become a better thinker, writer, communicator and, most importantly, a well-rounded person. So, Jeff encourages you to hang in – the investments are worth it!
When things get stressful, do what Jeff loves to do – spend time with family, get on the motorcycle and travel to where the sun rises or to where it sets, and if things are really stressful, fire up the Xbox!
