Own Your Journey Conversation: Getting a Jump Start On a Career Change

Event has passed.

Discover what it *really* takes to pursue a degree as part of starting a new career.

In this 20-min Own Your Journey Conversation, we’ll chat with Lisa Beckelhymer, an entrepreneur with a background in music education. After hitting a rough patch, Lisa decided to make a career pivot to speech-language pathology. With the help of CE, Lisa completed 24 hours of prerequisites in just 8 months so she could begin her graduate program on time.

Share your questions with Lisa as she gets candid on re-entering academics after building a career and shares her wisdom for those considering using a new degree to change careers.
