BA Individually Designed Major, Class of 2015

"I've tried other programs, but by far SNHU online is the best I've participated in."

I am 53 years young. I have chosen business management with concentrations in marketing and small business. I am an herbalist and owner of Stambry's Crescent Moon Soap Co. Inc. Continuing my education has always been important to me, though I've started and stopped many times – life just kept getting in the way. Now I'm determined to get my degree as my children are grown and even my job, allows for me to continue my studies.

One of the reasons I decided to go back to school was my business. I had the opportunity to open the store of my dreams. We did so, but I lacked many of the skills needed to run a small business. After 3 1/2 years of running our "brick and mortar" store, it closed due to the lack of those skills. The business itself is sort of on hold, as I take some courses and decide where I want to bring the business next.

Many people are helping me in this journey from the encouragement of friends, family, and other business owners. At SNHU, my academic advisor Chantel has been an invaluable asset to me with advice or just letting me vent on how hard it was the last week or term because of so much going on. I've tried other programs, but by far SNHU online is the best I've participated in.
