Well, folks, this is it. My last official duty as your Gender & Sexuality KC rep. After 6 outstanding years, it is time to pass the reins on to someone else. I’m sad to be leaving this position, as I’ve truly enjoyed my work on the Region IV-W Advisory Board, working alongside my NASPA family. I could not have been more fortunate to serve you all under the leadership of some outstanding Regional Directors: Eric Grospitch, Tim Alvarez, Wayne Young, and Jerrid Freeman.
As we start 2017, think about getting involved and giving back to your profession.
As I pondered my topic for this article, I began to reflect on my career journey in Student Affairs and how I ended up in my current position, most likely the position I will retire out of. Assessment isn’t where I started or where I thought I would ever end up but here I am, loving every minute of it.
I hope holidays were good for everyone and refreshing as we embark on the new year and another semester. While everyone experiences family, friends, the holidays, and life differently we all share a similar purpose in our chosen career: We each use our given and developed skills to impact the lives of others for the better and we likely all experience the same reflective experience over the break.
