Debra Hunter completed her Bachelor of Science in Public Health in 2013 and is now pursuing her Master of Public Health with Kaplan University. She learned about the University from a friend who had attended. Debra will graduate with her master’s degree in 2015 and she couldn’t be happier about her accomplishments at Kaplan University. “I am a proud alumni,” she states.
Debra works full time, is married with children, and appreciates the flexibility Kaplan University provides. “Kaplan makes sense for me,” she explains. It is easier for her to take classes when she has the time, instead of being restricted to a schedule after work when she is tired.
“My education has always been important to me,” Debra adds. She attended a junior college after high school and completed her medical assisting degree in 1995. Debra always wanted to complete her bachelor’s degree and went back to school after her grandfather had a stroke. “My love for helping others and the healthcare field came from my grandfather.”
Debra has been able to advance her career after obtaining her bachelor’s degree. “I currently work as a client services/marketing assistant for a company that has home-based vision therapies for people that have visual deficits due to a stroke or traumatic brain injury.” Debra’s goal after completing her graduate degree is to work for Emory University or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in epidemiology or as a public health analyst. Debra says these goals would not have been possible without Kaplan University: “Thank you Kaplan University for being a part of my educational journey.”
