From Waitress to Upper Management

Where I Started

I started school at Bob Jones University in 2006, and I was not sure which path I wanted to go in my career. I changed majors a couple of times, and when I dropped out in 2010, it felt impossible to have a stable, solid career. It just felt so far out of reach.

Why I Needed SCOPE

Being a single mom, it seemed really overwhelming having to figure out childcare and attending classes. I really wasn't willing to give up time with my son in order to finish my degree. It was important to me to find something that prioritized online degree completion.

What I Wanted to Achieve

Being in a management position made me realize that I needed to go back and finish my degree. Within a year of getting the degree, I was promoted at my job. It really unlocked the potential for me to go anywhere and for me to continue to work my way up within the company.

A Passion for Education

Where I Started

We had played around with the idea of what would it take to start a Christian School in this area. The Lord brought people into our lives that had the same desire, so I remember having a conversation with Bodie, my husband, about the school.

Why I Needed SCOPE

As we were heading into our second year of school, we still couldn't find a school administrator. I was the ideal candidate, but the problem was I didn't have the degree to be an administrator. I was going to have to go back and get my Educational Leadership Masters Degree. I looked at a couple of schools that are out there for the program, but my mind kept coming back to SCOPE through Bob Jones because of the biblical worldview.

What I Wanted to Achieve

The SCOPE program taught me how to be a good leader. Not just any leader, but a leader based on the example of Christ's life. I loved how they always took us back to the Bible to look at the example of Christ. We should use that to then turn and be leaders to our staff and be the person that God wants me to be.

Reaching a Community for Christ

Where I Started

In our ministry, we're currently working with a lot of Hispanics, and I found myself unequipped to be able to counsel them. That drove me to have a desire and a passion to better equip myself with a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling degree to help them with their needs.

Why I Needed SCOPE

The reason why SCOPE works so well within the context of ministry is because of its flexibility. I'm able to take my classes, work with my family, take care of the ministry, take care of work, and do all these things at the same time without having any conflict with my schedule.

What I Wanted to Achieve

We have a Puerto Rican family who live in our neighborhood behind our church building. The man has several kids, and the lady that he's with right now has three kids, and not all three kids are from the same father. It just clicked with me, “How do I deal with people who, even though they are one home, all come from different broken homes?” That was the one thing that made me think about counseling. I wanted to help them in the best way possible.

Dealing with Difficulties


Coach John Shoffner invested in me as a basketball player at Webber International University. Years later, I returned to the program to be his assistant coach. When he stepped down, I took the opportunity to apply for the head coaching position. I thought I would be a viable candidate, but I was turned down twice. It felt like a huge setback. 


It was disappointing to realize my basketball knowledge was not enough to be a head coach at the collegiate level. I was told I needed a master's degree for advanced training in organizational leadership. The Sport Administration and Coaching program was flexible and affordable, helping me unlock what seemed impossible.


SCOPE helped me accomplish my dream of being the head basketball coach at my alma mater. It equipped me with the tools to guide my players in their relationships with each other and, most importantly, with Jesus Christ. I have learned valuable skills to lead others on and off the court and teach my players how to deal with their own adversity.
