What She Has to Say

As an Army veteran, former spouse of an active duty Soldier and spouse of a veteran, I genuinely love working with the distinct population of our military and veteran students. With over 10 years of knowledge with assisting the military and veteran population, I have made it my mission since separating from the military to help my fellow service members and veterans with transitioning from their military career to achieving their education goals. It is my goal to help assist you with the process of tuition assistance, using your GI Bill benefits and helping you understand what your options are and how to make them work for you to maximize your well-earned benefits toward completing your educational goals.

It is with this in mind that I thank you for considering Thomas Edison State University, and hope that I have the privilege of working with you, in order to achieve your academic goals.
