GSNP Webinar- Not So Smooth Sailing: From Grad School to New Professional

July 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-4

Chaos and life disruptions are a natural feeling when transitioning from one stage of life to another. While some transitions are easy, others not so much. Whether or not you’ve had professional experience prior to joining a Higher Education graduate program, the transition to life as a new professional can be especially daunting. This presentation will cover several themes that became apparent during the presenters’ experiences of making their recent transition, and identifying strategies they utilized or wish existed for them.

Presenter Bios:

J Ravancho (they/them) is an Academic Advisor at Miami University, passionate about empowering marginalized communities on college campuses. They are particularly passionate about looking at ways in which Higher Education seeks to support (or not support) those from marginalized communities allow students to persist to graduation. As a Pilipino-American, who has worked at/attended PWIs, they recognize the importance of working to remove barriers to help support students. Beyond supporting students, J is extremely passionate about mentoring graduate students through their transition from student to new professional to help ensure that they remember to prioritize themselves over the work to help achieve a balance as a way to better support students while sustaining themselves. J is passionate about ensuring justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, and access for all, and recognizes it as an enduring and perpetual process.

Meet McKenzie Kitzmiller (she/her)! McKenzie serves as a Regional Property Manager for Tri Delta Fraternity and gets to work with Sorority House Directors, travel to Tri Delta houses, and support collegiate women. McKenzie attended University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign for undergrad and Clemson University for graduate school, where she found her passion for working with students in Fraternities and Sororities. Being a member of a Greek Organization and getting to live in a shared space with your brothers/sisters/siblings can be such a big part of someone’s college experience, and McKenzie gets to work in supporting that. Outside of work, McKenzie loves reading (my Goodreads goal is 30 books this year!), hanging out with her cats Clem and Sunny, and traveling for fun!
