I've been the director at WU Career Services since 2006 after working in career services at KU for about 7 years full-time and 4 years part-time while in graduate school. In my first life, I was a music educator, with thirteen years teaching in schools in Arkansas and Kansas and six years teaching at the college level while working on a master's and a Ph.D. at KU. I am certified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory. At WU Career Services, I work with students of all types for both career counseling and career/job-search advising when not absorbed in administrative work. My memberships include both the Kansas and National Associations of Colleges and Employers (KACE and NACE), the American Association for Employment in Education (AAEE), the National Career Development Association (NCDA), and the local Chamber of Commerce and Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) chapter. I have degrees from Henderson State University and The University of Kansas and enjoy traveling and gardening.
