How did you get started in the Career Services profession?

I was looking for a position that was centered on students and positivity, and this position became available. I feel blessed to be working in the CDC and seeing students as they work to ready themselves for the job search process.

Describe a “typical work day” in the Career Center.

Very busy but joyful! I am the financial person for the office, so my day involves spreadsheets, purchasing, reports and such. I also get to see the students come through which is the primary purpose of the Center.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I do most everything with my family. We are big Razorback fans, naturally, and we enjoy gardening, camping & floating. The outdoors have always been a part of my life and living in this area makes it easy to grab some quick "nature time" on a whim.

What is the most interesting place you have ever visited?

Jamaica - climbed Dunn's River Falls and it was spectacular! My bucket list destination is Ireland.

What do you like best about living in NWArkansas?

I love the variety of things to do from outdoor playtime to shows at Walton Arts Center. There is something for everyone here and this area is so extraordinarily beautiful, what's not to like?
