Why Sandra chose MIPS...

I have worked in the virtual world for five years in a variety of settings. MIPS truly offers something unique to each student: the ability to customize his/her learning. I believe that MIPS is paving the way for virtual education in a way that’s unlike anything I have ever experienced. I’m thrilled to be a part of this team and to be helping students take ownership of their education. Helping students succeed is my passion!
