Deanna combined the disciplines of environmental science, public relations/media literacy and photography, creating her concentration: Ecological Advocacy in the Media. She completed her final project on the native plant restoration at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, which led to an internship at the center and introduced her to AmeriCorps. Later as an AmeriCorps leader, she supervised volunteers and developed educational training programs, including seminars on restoration and education.
Marylhurst University was the only school in the Pacific Northwest Jeannie could find that offered studies in all her areas of interest: history, religious studies and astronomy. The BA in Interdisciplinary Studies gave her the ability to combine those disciplines in a course of study she titled Defining the Divine, examining the historical relationship between scientific discoveries and conceptions of the divine. Jeannine now works at the United Church of Christ, helping others in times of crisis.
Sally returned to college when her oldest daughter first started her undergraduate degree. Her concentration combined cultural studies and history (alongside a second BA in Art), which helped inform and expand her personal business of graphic arts.
