I have accepted a position at the University of Utah as an Academic Advisor for the College of Health! I am very excited to be a part of one of the top research schools in the nation but also to be a part of the largest College and Department on campus.
I will be working in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science which has 4 undergraduate programs and 5 graduate programs. The Department has over 1,300 students and expects a growth of 15% in Fall semester.
This is a big step in my career and education. I will have the opportunity to enroll in one of their 95 graduate programs as well as have the opportunity to be a part of many student's lives. I will be helping to develop new programs within the Department, share knowledge of Health within the community, work with student athletes, and prepare students for medical school. I find enjoyment in knowing that I can make a difference and to be able to help guide other student's to success in their own education and future careers.
This will also be a chance for me to change my personal health habits, gain a stronger knowledge of health and exercise, as well as help with my life long struggle with weight.
Now I just need to wait until June 1st for the first day!
