Kristen Jowers

Academic Advisor

  • Bachelor of Science, Psychology
    Florida State University
  • Master of Science, Marriage and Family Therapy
    Valdosta State University

Year started working at VSU: 2016 as a graduate assistant and 2018 as an academic advisor

Why I love advising: I love advising because I get to work with awesome, creative students every day. My favorite part of advising is advocating for students as they bridge the gap between where they are and where they would like to be. One of the ways I do this is by co-creating an academic plan that incorporates academic goals to serve as a road map for students to use during their time at VSU.
