Director of Advising & Student Success
How did you gain experience when you were a student?
Developing strong relationships with both PEER and FACULTY mentors proved to be invaluable in helping me gain experience as a student. In addition to this, putting myself “out there” and taking advantage of all the co-curricular opportunities that my advisors recommended!
How did you become a Student Success professional?
My career path in Student Success is rather unconventional. We can walk to The Mill and talk about that sometime! But honestly, my passion to see students (particularly students at UNL!) thrive is really what drives me every day.
Who is someone who impacted your career development?
The very first person I met at New Student Enrollment – my advisor Dick Streckfuss. He had a wonderful way of making every advisee feel welcomed and supported. He took the time to get to know me and my interests and encouraged me every step of the way. He was also a no-nonsense faculty member who pushed me and my peers to excel! The faculty and staff at UNL are like none other.
