Navy Vet & Military Wife Pursues DBA from Saint Leo University

Stephanie Lee knows all about time management. Not only was the 29-year-old a Navy sailor for 3 years, but she has also pursued higher education and is working toward even more.

Lee, a native of Salem, Oregon, has already attained two degrees from Saint Leo University – a bachelor’s degree in business with a focus on technology management and an MBA with a concentration in project management. She is now working on a third – a Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) through the university’s online program.

Lee explains how finances played a big role in her choice to enlist in the military.

“My family didn’t have the money for me to go to college, and I just couldn’t afford to go myself and work at the same time,” she says. “Going into the military allowed me to get that regular paycheck and be able to earn my education.”

She was an E4 Navy petty officer third class and served aboard the USS John C. Stennis out of Bremerton, Wash. She also completed training in New York and South Carolina.
