Learning Center Experience
Samantha Lord is a lifelong resident of Dayton, Ohio. She graduated from high school in 2009 and attended a university in eastern
Kentucky, which proved not to be a good fit.
Samantha worked for a
time as a receptionist and, in January 2012, enrolled at Kaplan University to
pursue a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration from the School of
Health Sciences. Kaplan University accepted 36 transfer credits
from her prior college experience.
“Being a single mom
and working full time, I chose Kaplan because I needed something that was going
to be convenient. I also wanted to be the first in my family to
graduate from college, not to mention setting a good example for my daughter,
who was 4 months old when I enrolled at Kaplan University.”
While attending Kaplan
University, Samantha started at working as a call center representative at
McKesson in the fall of 2013.
In 2014, Samantha
finished her bachelor’s degree and was promoted to team lead at McKesson, where
she helped manage the call center. She decided to continue her studies.
“When I finished my
bachelor's degree I figured, why not finish my master's as well. All of my
advisors and teachers were helpful with any questions in helping me
succeed. For me, just having someone there to help me every step of the
way is what pushed me to finish when I didn't feel like doing it anymore!”
Samantha earned her Master
of Science in Health Care Administration in November 2015. She also
earned something else―another promotion and a salary increase as Senior
Operations Supervisor, where she leads a team of more than a dozen employees.
“Working full time and
being a parent while attending school was not easy. It took a lot of discipline
at times to study, but in the end it was all to provide my family a better
life. Kaplan University prepared me a great deal in leadership and
for the role that I am currently in. I can’t wait to see what opportunities
will arise and further my career.”
