Director, Career & Professional Development

Mary Michael Hawkins

I help students relieve the stress and pressure around their career search process. Students leave Career & Professional Development with a sense of hope and accomplishment. Ultimately,  we are here to help them take their education to the next step or steps in their career path. I am compassionate and want students to know that I am listening to their story and their hopes. Excellence drives me and I focus on what I can do to make a difference in a person’s life. I enjoy being with my family, baking, cooking and reading. I grew up in Colorado, it’s my forever home. Career & Professional Development gives students the support and guidance to translate their education into a career. Also, it gives them the opportunity to be coached to shape and craft a career path. It is my privilege to help and support students in taking these sometimes difficult, but always exciting next steps.
