Dr. Benefield's educational background is diverse, as well as grounded in traditional liberal arts.  Her degrees include a B.A. in English Literature, with a minor in Political Science; an M.Ed. in Counseling; and a Ph.D. from Texas A&M University in Interdisciplinary Education, with course emphasis in sociology, psychology, and adult education.  With an interest in teaching at the college level, Dr. Benefield focused her research on retention of "non-traditional" students in the two-year college setting.

In her "prior life"...that is, before completion of her doctorate, Dr. Benefield was a professional counselor in the state of Washington for a number of years.  Although no longer in clinical practice, she greatly enjoys training the next generation of human service workers.
