On March 9th, PSU career counselor Louise Paradis, Advising & Career Services, received the 2018 Esther Matthews Award from the Oregon Career Development Association's (OCDA) Professional Development Institute. This award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated lifelong leadership, scholarship, and professional commitment to the career development field. 

A PSU employee for over 16 years, Louise specializes in administering the Meyers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI) tests to determine how one's personality handles stress, makes decisions, reacts in teams, and prefers to communicate. She teaches a variety of career-focused workshops and offers one-on-one appointments for students and alumni. 

Previous recipients of the Esther Matthews Award include career counselor Mary Vance, Advising & Career Services (2013).
