CSC Peer Advisors-Who We Are
We are undergraduate students who are trained by the Career Services Center to help you explore both majors and careers. As peers, we have learned to use the many resources available in the Center and look forward to sharing them with you.
We have learned how to develop our own resumes, and are ready to help you polish yours. We help support the staff in the Center with their many events and outreach activities. Come in and visit us soon.
Tanner is a (super) senior at Western finishing her major in Environmental Science, and Spanish and Geographic Information Science (GIS) minors. This is her fourth year and last quarter as a Peer Advisor in the Career Services Center before graduating in December. She is excited to have another year in the CSC helping students learn more about different careers and opportunities the office has to offer! A born and bred Seattleite, Tanner enjoys splashing through puddles and walking through torrential downpours which lends a hand to life in Bellingham. A fan of cold weather and copious amounts of seasonal decorations, Tanner enjoys hot chocolate, hiking, making and consuming a variety of baked goods and hanging out with friends in her free time. She has immensely enjoyed her past four years in the Career Center and is excited for one last hurrah with the CSC team.
Summer is a senior at Western majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders and minoring in Leadership Studies. Born in Eastern Washington, Summer has grown up with a love for sunshine and a passion for service. A common question people ask her is: What's your favorite season? Although you might think she’d say summer, it’s actually spring because of all the bright and beautiful things that come to life when the sun comes out. In her free time, she can often be found making pies or riding her bike. She likes to support people and make them feel welcome so if you ever see her around the office, please be sure to say hello!

This is her first year as a Peer Advisor in the Career Services Center, and also works as the Social Media Peer helping manage their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. She is very excited to use this opportunity to help others put their best foot forward when they enter the professional world. Whether you need tips on your resume, or a little boost in confidence, you can find her in the CSC ready to answer any questions. From Lynnwood, Washington, Kortney enjoys doing studio dancing and arts and crafts. She also has found a great passion in assisting students with their education when more significant circumstances may make their experience a little bit harder. One of Kortney’s favorite things to do is snuggle up with her kitten Hazel, hot chocolate in hand, and watch some good chic flicks. But if they weather permits, you can find her seeking out new adventures and exploring Bellingham.
