Career Design Studio & Graduate Advising Office

At Georgia Tech, I manage an in-house career advising studio at the School of Modern Languages, which offers appointments and materials review for graduate students in the MS-GMC and MS-ALIS, as well as Modern Languages majors in any language.

In conjunction with this work, I have the privilege to work with a team of 4-6 graduate assistants, who create content and event programming for our current students and prospective applicants. Supervising thisteam provides the opportunity to teach skills in marketing, communications, project management, and culture change management -- and to learn from my students along the way!
