Jennifer Christian '03
"The Carolina MPA program emphasized all of the skills that are critical to my daily work as I manage complex, team-focused projects and a budget of close to $70 million.
Jennifer Christian worked on housing projects in central Appalachia during high school, each summer through college, and for five years after graduating. She had a passion to help others and saw the possibility of a career. In order to be most effective and have the greatest impact, she decided to earn an MPA. Now Jennifer helps create strong and sustainable governing boards nationwide that work to improve the lives of low-income families.
