CCPE Catalog January March 2017 Melissa Amavisca

Happy Accidents and Successful Careers

Are you a planner, or do you fly by the seat of your pants? As much as I like things to work out exactly how I’ve played them out in my mind, experience has taught me better.

There is a saying that goes something like this: “It’s not a matter of what happens to you. It’s how you react to it.” Poet Carl Sanberg articulates this further: “Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me.”

Nursing school was on the horizon for Melissa Amavisca, as it is her goal to be a traveling nurse. However, her Plan B has successfully charted her career in the healthcare field. Her end goal is still the same, but Melissa is thriving — and saving lives in the ER — along the way.

She might look familiar to you as she has been featured in various CCPE commercials and videos as well as returned to our classrooms to connect with other healthcare students. Melissa is truly an inspiration. Learn more about this incredible woman on our blog.

What’s meant for you might not always be so obvious. I am a proponent of education and lifelong learning. Knowledge is a long-term gift – whether it’s a 2-year degree, a bachelor’s degree, MBA, Ph.D, a professional certificate from continuing education – or a combination of them all!

Weigh your options and forge your path. If it doesn’t work out the way you intended, that’s OK – keep going. That’s why so many options for education and career advancement exist. There are no limits on how successful you can truly be.

Katrina Rowan

Finding balance and success

Sometimes life can feel like a circus, and we struggle to juggle everything that comes our way. Work, family, sleep, dinner, bills, traffic – I’m exhausted just thinking about it!

I’m sure many of you can relate to this. Even those with the most composed demeanor on the outside face challenges privately. So, what barriers can we remove to ease our imbalances, be more productive, and (most importantly) accomplish goals to enhance our lives?

Take a cue from Katrina Rowan. As a wife and mother of two, she found herself asking, “What next?” Armed with a degree in public relations, Katrina found success in the sales industry. However, she left the workforce to focus on her family. As her two sons got older, she yearned for a career where she could help others.

“What’s next?” was the question she asked herself. The answer came in the form of our Online Paralegal Certificate program. Katrina said the online option allowed her flexibility and convenience while still providing her with tools to be competitive in the job market. Read more about Katrina on our blog.

If you’ve never considered taking an online class, now is the time. Looking for something fun? You can learn a new language, boost your creative skills with photography and design, or even learn how to garden – all from the convenience of your computer. Are you looking for a career change? Take your laptop to the top as you receive professional training and instruction in management, business, healthcare and more. With more than 300 options, we have something for everyone.

Whether you’re at the coffee shop, the park, or home in your PJs, our Online offerings are available for you. Efficient, accessible and affordable – all at your fingertips. Log on, and be empowered!
