Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is a special time of year.  It reminds me of chilly weather, turkey and the fixings, and of course, Black Friday shopping!  It is also a time to reflect and really think what is important in life.  There are so many things I have to be thankful for and too many to list on this blog.  I've narrowed it down to the top three.

Top 3 Things I'm Thankful For:

1.  Family

They are the ones who know me best.  Have been there thru thick and thin... The special days like when you've graduated college and the bad days when you're overwhelmed with school work.  Over the years I've learned that life is short.  You have to take advantage of every opportunity with them, because the future is not guaranteed.  Take them out to eat, host parties, bake with them, and travel.  It gives you lasting memories.  For example, as a kid I remember my aunt making peanut butter blossom cookies around the holidays!











2.  Walsh

This is really general and could be split into several categories:  students, alumni, co-workers, my job, my Walsh degree, etc.

The last (nearly) 12 years of my life have been spent living and breathing business... literally.  I was fresh out of college when I started at Walsh.  So needless to say, I've learned a lot about myself both professionally and personally.  Walsh has given me the opportunity to:

I'm grateful, because not everyone is as fortunate to have these opportunities in their career.

While at College events I often tell students and alums that you'll find that many of the staff/faculty have been here for several years.  One primary reason:  It's a great place to be!










3.  Ability to Travel

My family, friends, and co-workers know that I love to explore.  Traveling was a goal that I set right after graduating with my undergrad degree and starting my career.  It is important to learn about yourself and others.  After my first travel experience to the Caribbean, I quickly learned that not everyone is as fortunate as us to have a roof over our heads and food on the table.

Thank YOU

I've often heard from students and alums that they really appreciate the customer service and relevant material they received in the classroom.  We appreciate YOU!  Thank you for being you, spreading the word about Walsh, and living and breathing Business every day!
