Robin Johnson is a member of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and the 2018 Women Veterans Award Honoree of the Year and Editor’s Top Picks: Women of the National Guard by The Healthy Caregiver Community Foundation.

She initially chose the Organizational Leadership program because it aligned well with her career and her interest in human resources and leadership, but says she took so much more from the program. 

“What I learned by coming to Peirce College and joining the Organizational Leadership program is almost too much to name. The intimacy of the small class sizes and the relationships you create with staff, faculty and your classmates are things I will never forget,” said Johnson. “One professor in particular, Professor Chris Nosal, was so kind and approachable and I’ll always remember him saying to us, ‘I am here for you. I will continue to be here for you. We will go through this journey together.’ Those words stuck with me. The little things like that make the Peirce experience so worthwhile.”

During her Peirce journey, Johnson took on a new role as Family Readiness and Program Coordinator for the National Guard Bureau, which gave her the opportunity to apply what she learned in her bachelor’s degree program directly to her career. 

“After landing this new position, I remember my supervisor asking me where I could see myself in five years and I said I wanted to work my way to Master Sergeant. I knew this new position and my new degree would help me because I was now more competitive with my peers and ranked higher on the list for promotions,” she said. 

Johnson decided she was not content to stop at the bachelor’s level and is pursuing her master’s in Organizational Leadership and Management at Peirce. 

“In the past, I put up roadblocks for myself, but I didn’t let myself this time. Peirce helped me feel confident enough to make it. Peirce made this possible,” she said. I knew I could do anything with the love, commitment and support Peirce College faculty and peers provided to me.”
