Cameron Gamble's Story
"After investigating several options, I decided that Simpson's ASPIRE program was by far the best program for my busy lifestyle. Being a father of four and having a career that requires so much of my time, a 9-to-5-type school setting was not suitable. ASPIRE is exactly what I needed to maintain my priorities and finish my degree.
I decided to major in psychology because everything I teach in my role as a survival instructor revolves around understanding the physiological and psychological effects of human behavior.
After Sept. 11, 2001, I joined the Air Force and became an in-flight refueler on the KC-10 aircraft. As part of my service, I received Survival Evasion Resistance and Escape (SERE) training. After leaving the military, I worked with the U.S. Secret Service, Army Rangers and Special Forces, Marine Corps Special Operators and Navy SEALS in teaching survival techniques.
Now I teach survival skills to individuals and families without a military background, through an organization I founded called Project Taken. My goal is to increase the awareness and education level of young people and families both traveling abroad and carrying out their day-to-day activities here at home to help them identify and survive physical threats.
My goal with my Simpson degree is to apply the things I've learned to the courses I teach, so that my students always receive an advanced level of training. If there is one thing I took away from being in the military, it's that learning only ends when you decide it does.
I chose Simpson University because it produces the best results. The staff and professors here have met my needs and surpassed my expectations hands down."
