Accolades, Accomplishments, and Highlights: April 2022 graduate, United States Capitol Police Academy 

I will say this to anyone else in my shoes, it's never too late to start school. I was at a crossroads in my life, about to turn 30, and I felt as if I needed to accomplish more. 

My wife Jenna was my inspiration to attend CSM. She recently graduated from the nursing program and now works as an emergency room nurse, and CSM helped her accomplish that goal. 

I found that attending school online was extremely convenient since I also was working full time. I could work at my own pace, and typically, I did as much work as possible to get ahead and stay ahead. CSM's online classes took the stress away from working around tight schedules. 

Anytime I needed help, the staff was super friendly and helpful, especially my advisor Mrs. Maratta and at Student Account Services.  

I learned so many new things attending CSM, and I'm excited to continue learning; every class is a new adventure where you connect with people from all walks of life. 

After earning my associate degree in homeland security, I plan on transferring to University of Maryland Global Campus or George Washington University to finish my bachelor's. I want to chase my dream job of being an analyst at a federal agency.
