How did you gain experience when you were a student?

While I was a student, I explored different majors by taking part in on-campus clubs, activities, and employment. For example, I worked as a writer for the university magazine, acted in several plays and musicals, and joined the business honors student club.

How did you become a career development professional?

I have a B.S. in business with a focus in marketing, an M.B.A., and am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Educational Leadership in Higher Education. I became a career development professional late in life after spending about 10 years as a professional pastry chef. I made this change because while teaching culinary arts, I realized that helping students gain great experience during their college years was something that made me feel complete.

Who is someone who impacted your career development?

My career development was greatly impacted by Dr. Michael Gross who became my mentor when I was his graduate research assistant at Colorado State University. He helped me realize that I am a smart and strategic thinker and that working in higher education aligned with my values.
