About her career goals, Greeson wrote: “My goal is to ultimately focus on in depth story work along with portraiture. My relationship with individuals continues to give me purpose and that is what drives me. I hope to gain employment with a newspaper, as a freelancer with various publications following graduation, or to work to fund projects through grants. In the long term, past the 20­ year mark of my career, I would like to be a Director of Photography or a leader within a publication to work with a team of staff members to create compelling and engaging pieces of work.”
