CORE Career Coach (S.T.E.M and Environment)

I have over 12 years working in Higher Education in different roles and departments. A small piece of my background that I will share is that I was once an International student. My passion is learning new skills and working with  diverse populations. Each position that I held has made me realize how much I enjoy working with students and the community. In addition to working in the Higher Education field, I worked with the workforce (IowaWorks/Equus) with the Adult and Dislocated populations.

First job: My first job was at a Public Relations firm called Black and White in Penang, Malaysia. My main focus at this job was setting up marketing events for industries and writing press release. Skills learned at this job was time management, being detailed oriented and communication.

Professional and Community Activities: Diversity Committee, Board of Studies, SAU Staff Assembly, NAFSA (Association of International Educators) and AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers).

Honors and Awards: Completion of Windmills Training of Trainers Program: Changing the Perception of Ability and Employment Disability Inclusion Program.
