Hi, I’m Ashley! I am a former online MBA student and current academic adviser for online undergraduates at a public research university.
I was a face to face student when I earned my undergraduate degree. Three months after getting into graduate school, my husband and I were faced with a cross-country move for his job that required that I transition from being a face to face student to a fully online student. I found that there were very few resources available to me when I transitioned to online. I was also a bit uncomfortable being nearly 2,000 miles away from the school I was attending. In the end, despite initially being afraid, I loved being an online student.
After successfully working full-time and graduating from my MBA program with a 4.0 GPA in 2017, I found that I have a passion for higher education and, specifically, with supporting non-traditional online learners. I decided to start this blog to provide students with a comprehensive guide to attending and succeeding in online education based on my own experiences. While online education can feel isolating, it doesn’t have to be! I look forward to helping you along your journey.
