PROFESSIONAL MISSION STATEMENT

Throughout my professional career, I have found passion in working with students,


regardless of the environment. It is through consistent coaching, assisting, and facilitating
students transitions during formative, developmental life stages that I realize the importance of
acting as a resource. As an individual who personally struggled with what career path to pursue, I
understand the importance of professional leadership in facilitating this navigation. Through a
combination of Heifetz et al.s (2009) Adaptive Leadership model and Bolman and Galloss
(2011) Human Resources Leadership model, I have established my professional approach as one
that values open communication and contextual information when leading and guiding others.
Additionally, Schlossbergs (1984) Transition Theory has been pivotal in terms of how I have not
only approached my own life experiences, but also in how I view professional support and
strategies. Understanding the evolving nature of the student experience, whether in college or
transitioning out of, I strive to exhibit lifelong learning to perpetually inform and improve upon
my professional approach.
