Jeannie Cornelius, Academic Advisor
Hello – I’m Jeannie Cornelius, and I’m proud to be an Ichabod and a Washburn graduate! In 2002 I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and Psychology from Washburn, then went on to Emporia State University to complete a Master of Science in Counselor Education (2006). Since I earned these degrees as a non-traditional student, I know first-hand how challenging it is to balance college, work, and family commitments.
