If it weren’t for the online program at Oregon State Ecampus, I would not have had the chance to get the Master of Public Health.

I wouldn’t have complemented my work in OSU Extension Family and Community Health with classes that taught me the science behind program decisions.

I wouldn’t have met people around the world with similar passions through those classes.

And I wouldn’t have interned with an organization that changed the way I see the future of public health — and my role in it — to include the health of our planet as one with human health.

As I near completion, I am so grateful to have taken this path.

It isn’t easy to do well at work, raise a family and survive a global pandemic while taking classes online, but you would be surprised how much each feeds into the other. And it makes everything you do feel more meaningful.


The OSU Ecampus staff thanks Erin for sharing her story as a part of the Oregon State Everywhere campaign.
