—Valuing Her Crafton Education

Class of 2001, AA Marketing

It's been almost 14 years since I graduated from Crafton, but I still value the education I received there.  I took business classes from professors who had spent years actually operating businesses, and putting the theories they were teaching to practical use.  At the time, I was working for a small local company, and my Crafton education helped me identify my true interest in marketing, and helped define my career path.  I have worked in marketing and sales, and for the past three years have held the position of Associate Director of Annual Giving at UC Riverside.  Since earning my associate degree in Marketing, I've also added a bachelor's degree in Mass Communications, and most recently earned my MBA.  Even after all those additional years of schooling, I can say without a doubt that some of the best education I received was from Crafton Hills College. Thank you!
