Undergraduate: University of Redlands, BS in Management '16
Current Position: Foundation Coordinator, Alumni Relations for Antelope Valley College
Favorite Class: I really enjoyed Organizational Behavior
Favorite Professor: This would be a tie between Charmagne Shearrill and Dr Carl Oliver
Fondest Memory: My fondest memory would be taking group pictures in the lobby on our last day of class. I was excited to finally be done but I grew so attached to my cohort and the Burbank staff that it felt like I was leaving family behind. I will always value the friendships and the education I received.
What is your field of specialty, and how did you come to work in the industry? My field of specialty is higher education. Through my experience with Public Relations in a K through 12 environments, I was able to make the transition to the college environment. I found it motivating to leave the class and immediately put into practice the things I learned in class to my workplace.
In one word, how would you describe Burbank campus? Community
What advice would you give Redlands students? Take it one class at a time and utilize your resources. Save all of your work because it will come in handy when you do your Capstone. Also, make sure to take time for yourself too. I know school can be overwhelming and life takes over. Taking time to rejuvenate yourself will help you be more successful personally and academically.
What is your favorite aspect of your current job? Working in higher education allows me to help others reach their goals. When I work hard and look for ways to better serve my students I immediately see the results and watch them flourish personally, academically, and professionally.
