Schneider Tuition Assistance Program - Katie's Story

Getting my master’s degree has always been one of my personal goals. Schneider’s Tuition Assistance Program made it possible by helping remove the financial burden associated with education.

Changing with Schneider

I am currently enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, studying organizational change leadership with an emphasis in project management. I chose Organizational Change Leadership because, if one thing at Schneider is constantly the same, we are always changing! I have been able to study while working full time by completing online classes.

Finding a work-life-school balance

While I’ve been in school, I have also had to balance working full-time as a leader at Schneider and raising two young kids. I work in the Brokerage Division of Schneider Transportation Management and have been here for six years.

The balance of school, home and leading a team of inside-sellers has been hard. I’ve had to make different sacrifices at home but understand what the payoffs will be long-term.

Benefiting Schneider and Kate

Earning a master’s degree has assisted me in my career with being able to learn different techniques to help lead the organization during changes and challenge the leadership team on how we can stay competitive. I have been able to share insights with my peers and leadership in innovative ways. I have received one promotion while in school and have been able to set myself up for future success in my personal development plan.

I am very thankful for Schneider to invest in me and in my career. This benefit fits in with Schneider’s Core Values and its people always coming first. I understand Schneider will be supportive and will continue to invest in my career.
