Karen Pell, Ph.D.
For Baltimore City resident and business owner Karen Pell, CCBC is
a perfect fit. “CCBC has helped me develop practical skills that
allow me to adapt to each new phase of my work life,” says Karen.
“I've taken everything from accounting to planning to marketing at
CCBC, and the time I save by selecting what I want to know, when I
want to know it, is invaluable to my business and to me.”
Dr. Pell teaches at Johns Hopkins and holds many positions in
civic organizations. But last year, as she prepared to launch a
fledgling consulting practice, she came back to CCBC to earn a
continuing education certificate in Strategic
“I appreciated CCBC’s convenience and, for me, certification was a
real draw,” says Karen, who sees CCBC’s non-credit offerings as an
ideal solution for people who are moving between careers and who
need to develop new expertise and skills, but may not be
interested in additional degrees.
“Non-credit classes allow a quick
and inexpensive exposure that let you see if you would like to
further pursue an area of study, “ adds Karen. “And that can save
you both time and money.”
