Catandra Jones grew up in Warren County, North Carolina and graduated from Warren County High School. She earned an Associate of Arts and Sciences in General Studies/Administration of Justice from Southside Virginia Community College.
After graduating from SVCC, Catandra transferred to George Mason University and completed a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Social Conflict Analyst and Resolution in the University's Bachelor of Individualized Studies Program. She will be attending UNC Greensboro this fall to pursue a graduate degree in Peace and Conflict Studies, with plans to continue her studies through the completion of law school.
In addition to being a full-time student, Catandra is a Network Logistics Coordinator at NSD, a last mile logistics provider specializing in a full range of home and business delivery solutions, located in Chantilly, Virginia.
When she first began her studies at SVCC, Catandra's only educational goal was to complete an associate's degree. However, with the encouragement of SVCC's staff and instructors, she soon set her sights on advanced degrees. As she says, " The SVCC atmosphere has a way of pulling the best out of you."
