The social and curricular aspects of a single gender education at NDB provided an atmosphere that enhanced my learning and socialization experiences. It empowered me with life skills by giving me more responsibility for my education. NDB instilled confidence in me and provided the fundamentals of a strong, well-rounded education that helped me to succeed in my life and career. As an alum and current employee, I'm grateful for the opportunity to interact and act as a role model for students.
What I learned most from NDB was determination and the belief that I could achieve anything I wanted. I studied kinesiology/athletic training in college which at the time was predominantly a profession for men but was starting to see an increase of women joining the profession. At times during my career, I would be the only female amongst a group of all high level collegiate male athletes and coaches, working as the lead healthcare provider for mens' athletic teams. I never felt intimidated or insecure and always earned respect for my professionalism and expertise. I gained so much confidence in myself because of my time at NDB.
When I left my NDB home, I was ready for college. Little did I know how well NDB had prepared me for collegiate life academically, athletically, and for the career choices that I made after college. Even after leaving NDB, the support I received from the faculty, staff, and administration remained the same and still does today. Coming full circle from student to coach, the NDB tiger family has welcomed me home.
