How did you gain experience when you were a student?

I was a work-study student at the library and speech communication department while also working as a radio announcer. In my summers, I was a park ranger at Scotts Bluff National Monument.

How did you become a career development professional?

My major was communication studies with organizational psychology and business minors. My first job out of college was leading job search programs for individuals receiving public assistance. From there, I moved into a role working with career information for colleges and K-12 schools. This varied background in career development led me to work in college career services.

Who is someone who impacted your career development?

My supervisor and head of the Speech Team inspired me on presentations and content creation. My Business Communications faculty impressed upon me the importance of a solid resume and being able to target my skills as a liberal arts major. These both led me to pursue a career where I could deliver career preparation content and help people find ways to market themselves effectively.
