Day to Day

A typical encompasses multiple responsibilities. Most notably, I frequently meet with educators and community partners to promote our programs. I also meet with families and students on a regular basis to meet them where they are and help them realize their goals.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Being a confident public speaker is a necessity. To go a step further, strict preparation is required due to the complexity of financial aid and the questions that arise about it. Additionally, being fluent in multiple languages is highly valued. I speak Spanish almost everyday in my role, and this will only become more common as our Hoosier population becomes more diverse.

Recommended Education

My career is not related to what I studied. I'd recommend this path instead:
