Why I chose a career in student affairs
Knowledge is power, and I love seeing students grow as individuals as they gain educational experience, learn about their interest, and I truly believe that education can transform people to the better and enhance their entire quality of life. Working in Student Affairs gives me a fantastic opportunity to support individuals on their journey and help them staying motivated and focused on their goals.
What I’m looking forward to most about being a Student Success Coach
Those moments when you feel that you made a difference in a student’s life through the service you provide.
Experience & education
I have an international Bachelor’s degree in Working Life Science/HRM from Karlstad University in Sweden, University of Queensland in Australia, and Bethany College in Kansas, USA. I completed my M.B.A. in May 2018 from North Park University in Chicago, with a master’s certificate in Human Resources Management. I have experience of working with both domestic and international, traditional and non-traditional students, and most previously worked as a Program Advisor at UW Colleges. I am also an educated dance teacher and have worked with dance students and choreographies for almost 10 years.
I was born and raised in the cold North; Sweden, where I still have all my family, many of my friends and my little Chihuahua that I am absolutely obsessed with – so if you ever see me face timing with the cutest dog you have ever seen, come say hi to Knox. I am also a huge fan of and know all about Sweden’s national soccer team, but don’t understand the tiniest bit of American football.
