My experience as an Administrative Assistant is primarily in Higher Education, working for multiple departments within the same institution. This has provided me with a broader picture and greater knowledge in my field. My training is in the travel industry. I worked briefly in this industry directly following graduation. However, most of my experience in this industry has come from managing the Study Abroad and Exchange program at Missouri Western State University for four years. I have worked for Faculty Directors, the Registrar, as well as directly under the Provost at MWSU. In my current position, I currently work as the Administrative Assistant to the Chair of the Humanities Division at Metropolitan Community College, Maple Woods campus in Kansas City, Missouri. With 11 full-time and more than 30 adjunct professors, this position requires that I work with many unique personalities on a daily basis, as well as the student population.
