"My advice to Walden Students is to get the most out of your online learning experience, use the Walden resources and engage in the Walden learning communities. Online learning can be challenging at times and you get back what you put into it, so it’s important to stay accountable to meet your learning goals."

I joined Walden as a student, earning an MS in Psychology in 2011, and a Ph.D. in Psychology with a specialization in research and evaluation in May 2020. Before my Coordinator role, I worked as a research peer mentor at Walden supporting students in research methods, statistics, and SPSS. My goal as Coordinator is to provide students who come to our tutoring program a student-centered experience to help make their academic journey at Walden a more personal and supportive one.

My Experiences as a Walden Student

My Experience as a Walden Student



My Experiences as a Walden Student was terrific but rigorous. At first, I was skeptical of online learning because where I’m from, online education had a reputation for being second-rate.  However, I quickly learned that at Walden, this was not the case and that was one of the reasons I wanted not only to study here but also be part of the university holistically, both as a student and staff.
