In an interview with her undergraduate alma mater, Rogers shared that she was often the only Black person on the job but maintained her focus on personal success. She credited her time at Rider, along with two high school teachers and her guidance counselor, for her current place in life.

Rogers returned to school while working and raising a family, earning her master’s degree in 1997 from the University of Maryland at College Park.

Rogers’ husband, Terry, was also a student at Rider, and the pair have raised three daughters together. Despite her achievements, Rogers says that her children are her greatest accomplishment.
