Nursing/Allied Health Sciences
I have worked as an Academic Advisor in the IU Kokomo Nursing & Allied Health Advising Center beginning March, 2009. My academic journey began as a returning adult student, fall semester 2005, working towards a bachelor's degree in General Studies. Upon graduation, I found a desire to be connected with my campus and thus applied for an advising position. Currently, I am the Coordinator of New Student Orientation, Secretary of Professional Staff Council, Member of the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA), Member of the Indiana Academic Advising Network (IAAN), Indiana University Kokomo Alumni Association Member of the Board of Directors, and was recently appointed the IUKAA Representative to the IUAA Executive Council. I am also working towards my Master's Degree in Public Management.
I thoroughly enjoy working with students, and believe that is because I enjoyed being a student on the campus of IU Kokomo and also due to the fact that my son and daughter are college students too. I remember my own challenges and hear of my kids' challenges, and hope with this information can better prepare new and transfer students to be successful in college. I have my dream job, let me help you work towards yours!
