hawkeye_courtney_foulkCourtney Foulk had worked in healthcare for years, but when a company restructure left her without a job, she decided to reevaluate her career path. Her first stop was Hawkeye Community College.

“I sat down with the Admissions office and tried to figure out what was a good fit for me,” she said. Their conversations guided Foulk to the Executive Assistant and Legal Office Assistant programs. The programs had some overlap in course requirements, and the flexibility of taking summer classes helped Foulk stay on track to finish both programs in two years.

“I really liked the structure of the programs,” she said. “They set you up to succeed.”

Foulk is now optimistic about her new career path, thanks to the education she received at Hawkeye.

“Hawkeye gives you a foundation to build a career,” she said.
