One piece of advice Lori would like to give current students: “Stay organized. When I started out at Kaplan [University] I was working a full-time job, I had 2 children to take care of, I was helping my husband with his small business, and I was customizing software for other small businesses. If I had not stayed organized I would not have done as well in my classes as I did. I created a spreadsheet where I tracked each week of work, including papers, assignments, discussion board posts and class attendance. As I finished each item, I dated the spreadsheet to assure that I didn’t miss anything and that it was completed on time. This method has served me well in my new career, organization is key to my current role as I have several projects I am working on at the same time."
How Kaplan University helped Lori develop as a professional: “My education at Kaplan [University] gave me the tools and knowledge that I needed to [advance my] career path. I have had the opportunity to travel and learn hands on the ins and outs of the technology industry.”
