Recruitment & Advising
Coordinator: Hastings Location
How long have you been with the college?
I began my employment at Bryan on August 30, 2021.
What is your position and what do you do day-to-day?
I am the Recruitment and Advising Coordinator for the new Hastings location! I get to travel all around Nebraska attending college fairs and various other events to recruit students. I help potential students with the application process, and advise new students for their first semester. I also tell my students that I get to be one of their biggest cheerleaders during their time at Bryan, and my office is always open and stocked with fidgets, snacks, and suckers!
What do you like about Bryan?
One of my favorite things about Bryan is the passion for helping students be successful. Getting to know our students on a personal level is clearly a priority for all staff and faculty, and I believe that really contributes to the students’ success. Bryan has a fantastic reputation, and I am excited to bring that to Hastings!
What is your favorite place to be on Hasting's campus?
Right now I am housed in the Morrison-Reeves Science Building at Hastings College, it truly is the most beautiful building on campus and my favorite place to be! On the warmer days, I love to walk over to the waterfall anytime I need a brain break.
What is your hidden talent?
A hidden talent of mine would be riding horses. I’ve been riding for over 20 years and have done everything from jumping to rodeo! These day’s though, you’ll find me at a much slower pace; casually riding, teaching my son to ride, or helping move cows!
What do you do in your free time?
During my free time, I love to do anything outside. Exploring, fishing, gardening, riding horses, etc. I have a 6 year old son who is discovering his passions as well, and I love watching him learn new things and build on his talents. I also love to travel and spend time with family.
What is your favorite restaurant in Hastings?
It is impossible for me to pick a favorite, I’m a foodie for sure! Hastings is small, but we have an outstanding variety of local hot spots and food trucks! My list of favorites include Rivals, Kitty’s Roadhouse, Odyssey, and Blue Fork. If you are a food truck fan, you must check out The Big Pig, Beto’s Tacos, and Nomad Pizza!
