Career Services Director | 14 years of success connecting the college educated to the world of work
I am an award-winning career services professional working to connect students and employers. When working with students, I empower them to research industry needs, to connect the value of their academic knowledge to the world of work, and to implement proactive internship and job-searching strategies that work in today’s economic climate. My strengths lie in teaching professional development and career readiness skills. I strive to create stronger connections between university campuses and the world of work by nurturing relationships with key administrators, faculty, alumni, and employer stakeholders. Underpinning all of these efforts, I rely on researching national trends, using best practices, and implementing current legal/ethical guidelines surrounding internship programs and entry-level hiring of the college educated.
I have worked at a variety of institutions -- small and mid-sized, public and private -- and in my current role of Director of Career Services at LSU Shreveport, I supervise two staff members. Together, we execute all career services office functions for an institution that serves over 8,000 students.
