The longer that I am out of school, the more I value the education I received at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy. The intensity and challenge of the course work made the transition into the professional world much easier for me. This in turn helped me to advance my career goals faster than I would have expected. As my career progresses, I find that the importance of the leadership skills and moral components of the school cannot be overestimated.

Working in government is never simple and rarely are issues black and white, but with a strong foundation such as that Pepperdine instills in students, you can be successful regardless of the situation.
