“Mercer’s professors and course offerings prepared me well for a hands-on career influencing national security in Washington, D.C. I have worked on security policy in both the executive and legislative branches of government. My first day on the job at the Pentagon working for the Secretary of Defense was 9/11/2001. Mercer’s comprehensive educational experience, both in and out of the classroom, solidified my passion for this field and gave me the requisite tools to succeed.”
