Au"D" Day

It finally came.... graduation day! After taking college courses ever spring, summer, fall and winter since I was fifteen years old (one third of my life!), I'm finally done!

Megan Mansfield, Au.D.
Doctor of Audiology

It was an exciting and surreal day. One which meant the world to me to share with my incredible supportive husband and families.

Seriously, they don't make husbands more supportive than this. I think he was almost more excited than I was about this day. It was twice as fun to celebrate this day with him than it was to celebrate my undergraduate without him. He's my world.

Mike's family. They drove all the way from Vernal and Brigham City! I love them!

My awesome family. My sister said she may not have driven 4 hours to get there but she still had to sit through a 3 hour boring ceremony... so she wants her sacrifice acknowledged. :)

My fellow doctors. I've shared a majority of my life with these people. We've quizzed each other, cried, celebrated and traveled to three different countries together... they are my family too. I am so proud of each of them and happy to have them as colleagues.

Most of all, I have to thank my Heavenly Father for helping me through these incredibly stressful, exciting, grueling and rewarding years of my life. I had my dad and then Mike give me a blessing at the beginning of each year and nothing short of miracles poured forth.
