Megan Eichelberger and Cherise Shockley are two extraordinary examples of full-time students using motherhood as motivation to reach their professional goals. Juggling the demands of parenthood, employment and college is difficult for anyone. These two ASU supermoms share their experiences of how they manage to do it all.
Eichelberger’s choice to go back to school as a full-time student and working mother of three was simple ― she was motivated by her goal of being a role model to her children. “There’s something really special about being a role model for your kids ― and more importantly, demonstrating the importance of education. Going back to school really is a great way to model resilience!”
Mom to Beckett, Madigan and Thatcher, Eichelberger is actively pursuing her degree in interdisciplinary studies focused on business and data analytics. She navigates these priorities with a flexible plan.
