Why I chose a career in student affairs
As a college student, I relied heavily on the guidance I received from advisers and other personnel around campus. I noticed how much my experience in school was enhanced from the outstanding support I received. I chose a career in Student Affairs because I wanted to be a part of a highly collaborative setting to assist online students improve their connectedness to their campus and its resources. As an active listener and proactive coach, I hope to make an impact on students’ well-being and ability to succeed.
Best part of being a Student Success Coach
There’s nothing more satisfying than helping a student make connections and succeed. I really enjoy getting to know students on an individual basis and empowering them to seek out the resources they need for a positive educational journey. There’s always bound to be bumps in the road, but it’s extremely gratifying to help someone smooth them out and learn from the experience.

I worked as a projectionist while in college and briefly considered a career in film/cinema. I loved working with film on a daily basis, but decided that my appreciation for the field was enough for me and moved on. As genuine filmstrip is replaced by digital platforms, perhaps I can get involved with it again in a “vintage” capacity some day!
