As the CCPS Online Recruiter, Katy helps students at the start of their academic career at Drury University. She also guides students through the transfer process and assists many students hoping to finish a program of study after sitting out for awhile.
Katy worked for the University of Missouri-Kansas City during her undergraduate study and later as a Graduate Teaching Assistant/Academic Advisor. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1998 and Master of Arts in 2002, both in Communication Studies, from UMKC. After a stint in television production work in Kansas City, she returned to mid-Missouri and worked as a Technical Recruiter for State Fair Community College from 2004 to 2009. Katy has a special interest in helping non-traditional students succeed, as she experienced firsthand the challenges those students face.
In addition to doting on her four-year old son and the family pets, Katy enjoys traveling and scrapbooking all the aforementioned. She also loves a sunny day on the water, movies, books, and most any other form of embellished storytelling.
