Jessie Chism currently lives in New Jersey and is two years from graduating from OLLU with her MSW. Finding inspiration in the outdoors, she spends countless hours hiking, paddle-boarding, and hanging at the beach, all while carrying a notebook to jot down great ideas and reminders. As a child, she grew up on a farm in Indiana, which is where all of her family still lives. Looking in cracks and crannies for ideas and techniques to make the daily adventures of life easier and more manageable is Jessie’s specialty!
Jessie Chism – Online MSW Student
Do you work best when you can bounce ideas back and forth between colleagues? Are you considering enrolling in an online degree program, but unsure if the distance between you and your classmates and professor could be a problem? Those questions definitely washed through my brain as I pondered the option of online learning. I love working within a group, or brainstorming with others, and was a little scared at the thought of being on my own in this adventure.
Becoming a student again can be challenging, but you can do anything you put your mind to, so push away any negative statements and remember how awesome you are! Investing in yourself and your education is the smartest choice...
