MEET THE GRADUATE CLASS of 2020!

Brittany Dempsey

Major: Master of Management (MIM) in Healthcare Management
My most memorable experience at Converse was: being the first-ever graduating class in the Healthcare Administration program. Following graduation, I had a full-time job waiting for me as the Business Office Manager at Providence Care Hospice. In addition to working full time, I had the privilege to be a trailblazer alongside my two other sisters to earn a Master of Management in Healthcare Management degree – another first for Converse. I am beyond grateful for the professors and mentors I’ve had during my time at Converse and will cherish all of the lessons and memories I’ve learned along the way.

After Converse I will: continue working at Providence Care Hospice as the Business Office Manager.

Jennifer Bise Fox

Major: Masters in Art Education
My most memorable experience at Converse was: starting my art teacher journey at Converse taking day classes – I was young and married and wanted to receive my teaching degree. While I completed that degree at another institution, I was always impressed by how much my Converse classes challenged me. Fast-forward 26 years, and I decided to return to Converse to earn my Master’s!

After Converse I will: retire from the classroom as of June 30, 2020! Many people asked why I would wait so late to earn my degree — it was the last thing to complete on my ‘career bucket-list’! I did it for me. My plans are to build my own life coaching business, assisting educators and professional women in their quest to accomplish their own bucket-lists!

My most memorable experience at Converse: includes a lot of great memories to reflect upon. I got married at the fountain of Phifer Science Hall!

Converse has been a dream come true for me.
