For Callie Kerr, learning you can do it was the best lesson of all

The task looked daunting but the question was simple: Could she do it?

Could Callie Kerr, who was already juggling a fulltime job, three young kids and a husband, earn her master’s degree in healthcare administration?

It was 2017 and she’d just finished her bachelor’s degree in healthcare management at MSU Denver. “I wanted to start working but I lacked experience. That’s when I decided my MHA might improve my chances of landing the kind of job I wanted.”

Choosing the MHA program at MSU Denver was the easy part, she just wasn’t sure she could balance everything.

“I knew the professors were excellent and the distance learning was key. “Knowing that if I couldn’t make it to campus, I could still participate in classes was a huge feature.”

“I knew the professors were excellent and the distance learning was key. “Knowing that if I couldn’t make it to campus, I could still participate in classes was a huge feature.”

Participate — and graduate – she did, in the spring of ’20 and with a 4.0 GPA.

How?

“It truly does take a village,” Callie says. “I couldn’t have done it without my friends and family, especially my husband. We are always each other’s rock.”

She adds that her instructors proved their passion, too. “They were mentors as much as they were professors.”

What’s more, she landed a job she loves – she’s an operations leader for a dental service organization in Highland Ranch.

“When I decided to get my MHA, I knew I wanted to make an impact on the business of healthcare and now that’s what I’m doing. I guess I’m proof that if you can figure out how to balance it all and keep your sanity, anything is possible!”
