Ms. Ballinger is the point person for employer relations, career/graduate school fairs and general career counseling. She offers our students a blended approach between human resources and career services. She believes everyone has a vocational passion waiting to be unleashed. Her aspiration is to encourage students to discover that passion.
Kim enjoys her key position as she works with people to find resources and answers to their calling and career-related questions. She schedules appointments, manages the office and helps maintain Lee Career Central. She also works closely with our student career assistants.
The Center approaches career advising from a strengths-based philosophy, with SVAs guiding you to focus on who you are. Through the Center for Calling and Career, you may schedule an individual advising session with faculty who are prepared to listen, question, encourage and guide you in a discovery of your strengths and calling. These advisors are especially helpful if you are undecided about a major, or would like to make a change in your major or minor. We have 30 trained SVAs across each academic department on campus.
