Why Regent University?

Regent University offered a unique perspective in undergraduate studies. Christ-centered leadership and biblically centered classes develop students professionally and personally. The campus is beautiful, and I soon found that my professors and my fellow students exuded enthusiasm and dedication to the Lord and their educational pursuits. Classmates prayed with me and for me; studying became a group effort towards excellence and not just another homework assignment.

Why Online Learning?

I was 21 when I started the online learning program at Regent University. I had the opportunity to dual-enroll in a local college while in high school, so my associates degree was partially complete when I graduated in 2002. I hit the ground running by working full time after graduating from high school, attending night classes to finish my associates degree. I guess I got used to the schedule, and when it came time to find a university to transfer to, I knew I'd want a flexible format that would allow me to continue in my professional endeavors.

Why A Business Degree?

My degree is in Organizational Leadership and Management. I chose this concentration because of the unique mix of business strategy and leadership development. In choosing a degree program I wanted one that would emphasize the "people" part of organizations and their strategic development. Some degree programs focus primarily on the financial and strategic side of business development, but Regent stressed the importance of the organization's people and the effectiveness of biblical leadership.

Business Degree


My friends came up with something called chelseawords because I make up words randomly. After I explain what I meant to say, it is added to the chelsea.dictionary.

"I didn't call even though I said I would because I thought you might be washing your hair."
"I would have put gas in the car but I didn't know if you preferred regular or premium."

Accidentally inducing guilt. May come across as manipulative, but isn't.

Like a bear hug, but doesn't squeeze you to death.

What happens when you stay in bed to do your deep thinking.

Road Grace:
Let it go. He didn't mean to cut you off. Ok, he did, but still let it go.

Protecting the innocent... and guilty.

Overhearing the cell conversation by the woman sharing intimate details about her relationship/health problems/headache.
See also: Fishbowl Syndrome that causes one to be completely unaware of his/her surroundings.
("And then I was like, No he DIDN'T! And then she was like, "Oh yes he DID!")

A spouse-type-mental check-off.
"When he heard me say I make a mean Pop-Tart, I saw his eyes go all CheckMate on me."

SameSox Marriage:
Laundry sorting.

Pot roast, macaroni and cheese, pizza, bacon, black coffee, Pop-Tarts, Cap'n Crunch, steak, potatoes (mashed), potatoes (home-fried), potatoes (baked), potatoes (fries), potatoes (au-gratin), potatoes...

Chicken. Salad. Peppermint mocha lattes.

Running into Target to "get something quick" and then getting distracted and finding a sale and stumbling into the makeup section and remembering that your towels are starting to look tattered and how are we on Tide? Oh yeah and paper towels and trash bags andddd SHOES!!!!
