TOPIC: Hello fellow PhDs

Hello fellow PhDs 5 years 6 months ago #6

I may as well be the one to break the ice! I've been looking for some kind of online community because getting a PhD can be isolating.

So...my name is Beth! I have my Masters in Educational Leadership, and I'm now in my 3rd year going for my PhD in Learning Technologies Design Research. I have two wonderful teenagers and a very supportive husband who puts up with my insane schedule and insatiable desire for education. If I had spare time, I would choose to spend it gardening.

fashionstylist, you do have a great background; I like that you're continuing in academia! Do you have future plans that include the fashion styling things that you're doing now?

I'd be interested to learn more about your fashion plans. Does Fashion Styling Co. have a website I can peruse?

Hello there,

My name is Shaundra and I am in my second year of the PhD program and I can't believe it. I remember being in undergrad and saying , this is it! But I love academia. I am a lot of things! I run my own Fashion Styling Co. and will be opening up another boutique in 2015. I also have a new fashion blog that will be released in June 2014. Needless to say, I am busy!

I have a BBA with a double major in Bus Admin & Finance. I also have an Associates degree in Fashion Merchanding, Masters of Science in Management and now I'm working on my PhD in Finance. Whew!!!

My hope is to work in academia and be able to empower, teach and guide the minds of those that desire it. I have over 20 years of experience in Finance, Banking and Accounting and I love it. I currently work as a Sr. Financial Analyst.
