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.

Madison is loving her Junior year at Western and her third year as a Peer Advisor. She is majoring in Psychology and minoring in Education and Social Justice. She is grateful for the opportunity to help other students create resumes and cover letters that will help them achieve their career dreams. Kindness, positivity, and successful collaboration are values that she is excited to integrate into her appointments. Some of her favorite things include windy ferry rides, cups of chai tea, and good books. If she is not in the Career Services Center, there is a good chance she is at the beach, listening to music, or going for a run in the rain. She enjoys meeting new people, so please say hello when you see her working.
