        Valuing my master's degree

        I will value and draw from my experience earning my Master's of Science in Urban Studies with a concentration in nonprofit management from Georgia State University. I now teach philanthropy and nonprofit administration at Grand Valley State University, mostly to graduate students. My experience not only influenced me in my academic and professional careers, but it has impacted my life and helped shape me as a person. My professors such as Arthur Brooks, Ted Poister, Harvey Newman and others were wonderful. I also had the opportunity to teach part-time at GSU a course I developed in volunteer administration. It was that experience that prompted me to pursue a career in academia. I became hooked on teaching.
