Wellness Coach Earns Master’s Degree to Prepare for Leadership Role

Laura Kuglitsch is very happy with her choice to enroll in the 100% online UW Master of Science in Health and Wellness Management through UW-Parkside. “I looked into so many master’s programs after finishing my undergraduate degree in kinesiology,” she says. “But I just couldn’t find that fit.”

The fit Laura is talking about not only has to do with how directly applicable the Health and Wellness Management curriculum is to her career, but also the flexibility and convenience of an online degree.

“I took two courses each semester, while working full time Monday through Friday. On top of that, I teach cycling and strength classes three nights a week. The draw of the online program was that I could continue to work and teach classes, come home, and still get my schoolwork done. Otherwise, I would have had to give up teaching classes, which is something I love doing.”
