Professional Experience

Strengths Lisa brings to this position, on top of enthusiasm and ingenuity, include career counseling, military and engineering experience, an ability to work with diverse populations and a team-centered approach. In the past twenty years, she has provided resume and career counseling to Air Force officers, enlisted personnel, reservists, and civilians. Most recently, she utilized personality assessments to assist University of Dayton students with major and career decisions during her internship at the University of Dayton counseling center. In addition to counseling skills, her experience as an engineer in the commercial, defense and intelligence industries provides her with a foundation in communication and coordination with local, national and international scientific and technological professionals. This insight, along with hiring panel and promotion board experience, will enable her to translate requirements to and from students, faculty, alumni and employers providing comprehensive career counseling.

Cultural skills, combined with practical experience, enables Lisa to provide valuable career counseling to the growing population of international students on campus.  Over her career and internship, she has worked with international students and counterparts from Russia, India, the Middle East, China and Korea. As a student, her interest in cultural diversity culminated in a scholarly project focused on counseling outreach to international students.
