• My time at Carson-Newman University gave me the ultimate preparation for my professional life. Many times throughout my career I have been able to call upon experiences and information learned while in my undergraduate degree. I can say without a doubt I would not be where I am today in my career without my education from the School to Family and Consumer Sciences at Carson-Newman University.
