Associate VP/Executive Director of Career Services

My Career Journey

I graduated with my undergraduate degree early and had no real idea of what I wanted to do with my psychology degree and did not know there were people at my university who could help. After some reflection, I decided to pursue my master’s degree in counseling and loved mental health counseling. At the time, finding a job at that time was a real challenge so I took a position in a career center at a community college and found my calling. This allowed me to help people in a real way, relieve their anxiety, and find their own paths to success. Since then, I have taken advantage of every opportunity to gain training and degrees to help me advance and I have loved the journey.
