What is different about MCNY?
The hands-on experience. While you're learning the tools you need, you implement them and explore outcomes: how your plan worked, did it work out well, how you could improve it, etc. The internships are fantastic.

I also liked the cohort model - that you stay with the same class throughout. You bond with the other students and support each other when you struggle.

How did your education at MCNY lead to what you do now?
As part of my coursework I made a business plan for a mock non-profit. I knew I wanted to help people but didn't even know what transitional housing was until I started creating the business plan. Through the process I researched and created transitional housing for parolees and people with drug or alcohol addiction. And that led directly to what I do now. I currently run two houses and am aiming for a third. I never thought I would have my own business while in school. Now I'm living my dream!
