MBA Human Resources Management

A Little About Me...

Hello, my name is Samantha Carlson. I live in Illinois with 4 kids and my beautiful wife. My kids are 15, 13, 12, and 12. We have two dogs and the most recent addition a rabbit. I currently am working for Dollar Tree Corporation and absolutely love the company. I am looking to move into a Store Manager position, hopefully soon. I started attending Ashford University when I was unexpectedly laid off from my job. I decided to further my education to better myself as a person and as an employee. I graduated with my BA in Business - Leadership and Organizational Management in December of 2014. I decided to pursue my MBA in Business focusing on Human Resources in January 2015.


I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Ashford. I have learned a lot about myself as a person, as a mom, as a wife, and as an employee. I am a hardworking, dedicated, honest, very trustworthy, and ethical. I firmly believe in treating others the way I want and deserve to be treated. I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, reading books, fixing cars, and helping others. I just invested in a beater with a heater so I could teach my two oldest children how to drive a stick shift. The other reason I got it was so my oldest and I could tamper with it and repair what needs to be repaired. I am looking forward to this new journey with Ashford. Thank you.
