Stacy J. Dobbs-Camino ’05M, ’06C
My Gannon experience began when my sister, Jennifer Dobbs ’03, recommended that I complete my master’s degree at the University. It turned out to be one of the best pieces of advice I have ever taken. Gannon worked with my busy life, and I found that it complemented both my professional and personal experiences. I received both a Master of Education degree in curriculum and instruction and my principal certification from Gannon. Today, I am the assistant principal at J.S. Wilson Middle School, part of the Millcreek Township School District in Erie. I am also an adjunct professor in educational psychology at Mercyhurst College and a board member of both the Pennsylvania Middle School Association and the Young Leaders Club for the United Way, and am currently completing my superintendents internship and plan to apply for the doctoral program to begin next year.

I watched my father attend night school to get his degree. His hard work and dedication paved the way for me to get my degree, and I knew Gannon was the place for me. Gannon taught me how to be flexible but disciplined at the same time. It would have been so easy at times to cut class and run over to State Street to catch the bus home. I learned time management! Today, I am the director of respiratory, laboratory and radiology services for the Chicago Market for Kindred Healthcare. Healthcare reform is a hot topic right now, and it will be very interesting to say the least how health care will change. I enjoy keeping up with Gannon news along with my wife, a fellow Villa alumna, Carol (Bailey) Albreski ’85VMC.
