Her husband is also in the military and is currently deployed.

Q: What would you say to your peers in the military about this program?

A: I have recommended the COML program to many of my colleagues. I’ve found it very beneficial to what we are doing in real time in the real world. I’ve been able to use my classes to analyze and look at what’s happening in real time and do something different than what I would have done without my new knowledge.

Q: Have you found the program flexible as it relates to your current role within the military?

A: Flexible, yes. Once I got past the initial anxiety of not being in school for 14 years everything has been going very smoothly.

Q: How has the program impacted your professional work within the military?

A: It’s influenced my decision making processes. I have people’s lives in my hands. The leadership portion specifically has helped me evaluate my approach toward conflict and the betterment of my sailors.

Now that I am almost finished with the program, I am better prepared and more well rounded to re-enter the professional business world for a long-term career.” Read David’s full interview here.
