Degrees:
Associate in Arts, Iowa Central Community College

Job Title: Enrollment Recruiting Specialist

Job Duties: I travel to over 90 different high schools within the state of Iowa speaking with students to promote Iowa Central and what it all has to offer. I also work with current students here on campus by advising certain majors and helping students make a smooth transition to the next step toward his or her future.

Favorite thing about Iowa Central: What I enjoy the most about Iowa Central is being able to get a great education for the same price I would have gotten if I went to a four year institution coming right out of high school. Being from a big city and going to a high school of almost 3,000 students, I thought Iowa Central was too small when I came on my visit and thought going to a bigger school was a better option for me. Well let’s just say I was wrong. Iowa Central was the prefect size for me, it’s not too small and it’s not very big. I had the opportunity to build lifelong relationships with the staffs here. Honesty, I have nothing but great things to say about Iowa because my time here was life changing. Thank you Iowa Central.
