My Story: Meagan Shipman

CF is a place where students can advance in their academic life, but also discover themselves. The path I chose is CF’s Office Administration program. I have learned countless soft skills, nearly perfected my customer service skills, and connected with the compassionate staff of this program. I was also able to learn through an internship with the Florida Center for the Blind and landed a part-time position at Skin Cancer Center of Ocala, where I was offered a full-time position. CF has been truly rewarding. I look forward to graduating with my Associate in Science and continuing with my bachelor’s degree soon after. Thank you CF!
