"Ashford's delivered a wonderful platform to allow us to continue to develop in our professional life.”

Joseph and Ofelia Larsen, husband and wife, met while in the Army. Joseph earned his Bachelor of Arts in Social and Criminal Justice from Ashford University, where Ofelia is currently earning her Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration while working full-time as an office manager and bookkeeper.

"Ashford's delivered a wonderful platform to allow us to continue to develop in our professional life," says Joseph.

This Oceanside, CA-based couple both served in the military following the 9/11 terrorist attacks in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. “You come back, and you get an opportunity to take advantage of some of the educational benefits and some of the other things you get from serving your country,” says Joseph.

“I’ve taken a couple of accounting classes, and the things I’ve learned I’ve been able to apply to my current job,” says Ofelia, adding, “It’s really helped me.”
