It's Never Too Late
Anita Gotcher - Dignity Health
Anita Gotcher enrolled at Ashford University through her company’s Education Partnership with Ashford. She had always wanted to go back to school, but “just the right time” never seemed to happen. Instead, life happened. After graduating with an undergraduate degree in 1997, she went to work, got married, had a child, survived cancer, and finally, started working at Dignity Health. Throughout everything, she held fast to the idea that she would pursue her master’s degree one day. Dignity Health provided that opportunity. “The experience was exciting and exhilarating,” says Anita.
