You can make an impact!

“Student loans are a mental weight from the time they are taken out until they are paid off. Despite the education being far worth the cost, they still influence every decision and cause stress at every life change. Knowing that I have help to pay them off has been a huge relief and motivated me to continue serving my patients while enjoying my job.” 
Ashley Jensen, Physician Assistant at Exodus Healthcare Network, and loan repayment recipient
