Background: What's your title, and what do you do on your job? And how many years have you been at FLC?

I am a Financial Aid Counselor, where I have the opportunity to help and advice students and families on how to pay for college. Applying for federal funds opens up a lot of opportunities for students to access funds to be able to attend college, and my job is to try to make it happen without money being their biggest concern. I advise them on making the best financial decision available to them. I have been working at the Office of Financial Aid for 9 months, although I arrived at Fort Lewis College in the summer of 2012 as an International Student.
