What experience most influenced your career, and how? Coming to work at NAU after many years living in Washington, DC and working in
the private sector was a huge change for me. It reminded me of the importance
of following your heart and intuition – when making career decisions or any
other big choices.

What experience most influenced your career, and how? Becoming a
certified lifeguard at age 15 really opened career opportunities for me.
I taught private swim lessons, got competitive positions- and great
professional experience- at summer camps, and moved into adventure
trip-leading, then outdoor education and so on. Throughout my career
development I focused on taking jobs that enabled me to contribute to the world
in a positive way and grow personally.

experience most influenced your career, and how? I attended a creative-arts high school that fueled passion and innovation in its students. As a teenager, it intrigued me that my friends knew what they wanted to contribute to the world, and had the confidence to pursue their dreams from a very young age. This experience led me to study positive psychology, a field focused on bringing out the best in people, and experiential education, for teaching life lessons with a lasting impact.
Part-Time Career Advisor

What experience most influenced your career, and how? The experience which most influenced
my second career, Student Affairs, was a less-than-satisfactory interaction I
had with my own freshman advisor. I've reflected often on that interaction, and
on what the advisor could have done or said in that moment, to better assist me
with my decision-making. That single interaction is what drove me to change
careers and to become involved with college students.

What do you love most about your job? What I love most about my job is being able to meet
