Kristen loves seeing the growth in the undergraduates and employees she has worked with. She writes, "It’s great seeing their confidence grow and seeing tangible results from our conversations."

What roadblocks did you encounter along your journey to find the right career?
Kristen explains, "It was difficult for me to find a career mentor and figure out what I wanted to do. It took me years to finally make the transition to grad school because I enjoyed part of my job in human resources and recruiting. However, I realized the career guidance and counseling/mentoring I loved providing would never be my full job if I stayed in that field so I decided to make the move after many years of contemplating."
