My official title is "Veteran's Counselor." I work with student veterans and family members of veterans (dependents) and help them with mental health counseling/art therapy/social services. So, I do individual counseling, group psychoeducation (classes about mental health topics) and a lot of referrals to other community services.
I also work with the school and help them with school wide events. I helped with a recent job fair that we had. I helped out when we had Women in Technology Day. Future and current women students were invited to network and learn about different fields. I led a discussion about what it is like to be a woman in a traditionally male field. Here are some pictures from the event:
|Students from the Lineman program demonstrate what they do!|
|A female student from another campus tries out what the lineman demonstrated|
And I had a table at our health fair. I did a mural about self-care (mental, emotionally, physically or spiritually) and had information about veterans services at the school and in the community.
Overall I really like working here. Most of the people here are super nice - and a most have been working here for quite a while. What I like most is helping the students!! If you have any other questions, I would love to answer them, so ask away!!
