I was a non-traditional student myself, and the first person in my family to go to college. I love that I get to be part of a team that allows more students the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills they need to excel in life. My goal as a professor is simple: empower students to ensure they become better managers, entrepreneurs, team members, and citizens of the world.” Dr. Milligan grew up in a military family, and that experience gave her a life-long love for travel (she’s been to all seven continents) and a great appreciation for other cultures. She’s always treated each move as a great adventure and an opportunity to explore new things. She currently lives in San Diego, CA.
