All people are on a path to learning; working with those who are intentional about it is one of my greatest privileges. I've worked with students in Admissions, Adult Education and as a Success Coach here at Central Michigan University. The simple fact that someone is a "student," opens the door to meet them where they are, explore where they want to go and walk alongside them as they craft their unique way.
