My Pepperdine master's degree in public policy gave me a solid foundation to succeed in my job in Washington, D.C. The focus on both the quantitative and qualitative sides has provided me with a good framework to examine policy in the position that I am in today. It provided me the necessary background in both American politics and economics which I have relied on over and over again in my position working for the Senate.

I am required to process a vast amount of information and come up with meaningful insight on a given subject set. Thanks to the rigorous academic schedule of the program, I have been prepared for the demands of my profession.
