Class of 2019
Training Institute Manager
Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence
I can say with 100% certainty that I would not be in the position that I am today, had it not been for Boise State’s OPWL program and all the wonderful staff associated with it. Mine wasn’t the most traditional of routes, but with the support and guidance from people like Dr. Marker and Jo Ann Fenner, I was able to complete my degree and begin my new career trajectory.
After briefly working as a contract Learning Design Specialist, I was able to obtain a full-time eLearning Specialist position with the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Demonstrating the skills and knowledge that I picked up through the program allowed me to bring new ideas and a vision to their Training Institute, and just 11 months later I was promoted to the Manager position. Again, I think it was largely due to the ideas and foundations provided to me by the OPWL program that made me such an outstanding candidate in their eyes, and I am eternally grateful that I made my decision to be a Bronco!
