How did you gain experience when you were a student?

I was a work study student in the distance learning office throughout my undergraduate career where I learned the basics of an “office job.” I also worked at the information desk at the student union, as a server at the local country club, and was a research assistant for English professor Dr. Jeremy Downes, doing research for his book, The Female Homer: An Exploration of Women’s Epic Poetry.

How did you become a career development professional?

I have worked in higher education for the past 14 years in a variety of roles and have been in my current position for the past 5 years. Working in the undergraduate research office gives me the opportunity to help students determine if a career in research is right for them and guide them in developing both specialized skillsets and transferrable knowledge.

Who is someone who impacted your career development?

I worked in the graduate admission office of the institution where I attended graduate school to offset my tuition costs. My supervisor in this position helped me see higher education as a viable career path for me. He encouraged me to consider my options after finishing my master’s degree and I’m very glad to have stayed in higher education for my career.
