"I hope to show my son that if he wants to succeed he needs to work hard and dream big!"

I married the love of my life on June 16, 2008 before he was deployed to Iraq. We moved to Nashua, New Hampshire almost two years ago before we welcomed our son Jackson in September of 2012. After my son was born, I saw the world in his eyes, and thought I want to give him everything plus more; I decided then I needed to go back to college and finish my degree. I looked into a few schools and chose SNHU as they have a campus in Nashua, and the main campus is 25 minutes away. I work in construction and chose to proceed with my B.S. in Forensic Accounting and Fraud Examination. Being a working mom in school is not easy, but I know my hard work will be worth it. I am still working every day toward my degree, and I look forward to the day my son, husband and family see me receive my degree. I hope to show my son that if he wants to succeed he needs to work hard and dream big!
