Why Love Come Back Kids?

"I have had the opportunity to work with a dynamic team under the Educational Options Division. Before this wonderful experience, I was working in Reentry services conducting Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for high-risk offenders on Parole and Probation. My passion for working with the disadvantaged has stemmed from my belief that changes don’t just occur overnight but rather through the renewing of one’s mind, goal setting, and hard work. My role as a Career Navigator allows me to assist students at any age, to accomplish their career goals with the understanding that when an individual has guidance and genuine support, possibilities are endless."

"Being the first person in my family to successfully navigate the system of higher education, it was incredibly formative for me to comprehend the struggles of conducting an effective job search, identifying career direction and career planning. In 2013, I transitioned from a long time career in the non-profit sector where I focused on organizational strategies to a career in education in coaching and development.  My focus is to support adult students where they are in their educational and career journey whether at the beginning, at the crossroads or in the fog.  My biggest passion as a career educator is to be a service to others; to empower learners from non-traditional backgrounds  and support individual transformation that leads to a better quality of life."
