Jacki Carr, executive administrative assistant, Community State Bank

There have been a few, but I think thus far my most impactful moment of being fearless was when I decided to pursue my master’s degree through an online program, while working full time and being a single mother to an 18-month-old.

I knew the job I was in wasn’t what I wanted to do forever and that furthering my education would open doors for me and my daughter’s future. So I took the leap and enrolled in Ashford University’s Master’s in Organizational Management program online and ended up graduating with a 4.0 GPA, and was offered a position in leadership four short months later.
