By Morgan Bernstein


The MBA Mama blog recently interviewed Full-time MBA program student and Lieutenant Commander Kelly Deutermann about her experiences with the Berkeley MBA program—and how she juggles being a mother of two and an MBA student while still on active duty with the U.S. Coast Guard.
