What have you been up to since you graduated? (Applying to/attending graduate school, working a job, etc.)
Since I graduated in summer 2021, I have been a graduate student at FSU’s Askew School of Public Administration in the Master of Public Administration program. Once I obtain my MPA, I plan on working in city/county management.
How did your degree in social science help inform your path?
My degree in social science helped to align me on a path to finding my dream career in public administration. I enjoyed taking both emergency management and public administration courses for my undergraduate degree. These classes led to me continue my education with Florida State University.
What is your favorite memory or spot on campus?
Since I was a student at FSU-Panama City, my favorite place on campus was out on the dock. From there, I was able to take in the peaceful views of St. Andrews Bay and it was a great spot to study.
