Penny Watson is a US Marine Corps Veteran, having served as an Aviation Operations Specialist. Ms. Watson chose UNH to complete her BS in Business Administration: Management because of its proximity to her family and home, but she has since come to love the community and people. Penny found that the most important lesson she learned while attending UNH was the importance of being yourself, however, she also recognizes the importance of staying connected. She recommends that incoming student Veterans get to know the other Veterans attending UNH and be involved in the Veteran community. Penny is pleased to note that she has obtained full-time employment as a Military Benefits Specialist here at the UNH Military and Veteran Services Office as well as having been accepted into the UNH Masters of Public Administration program.
