Becki has been at PSU since 1995, and worked in both Financial Aid and Admissions, Registration and Records before coming to the Undergraduate Advising and Support Center in 2003. After spending 7 1/2 years as an Academic Adviser/Community College Liaison, Becki became the Associate Director of Advising & Career Services in 2010 and has served as Interim Director since May 2016.
As with many students, Becki's first year in college was quite a change from growing up in a small town. She had the opportunity during her undergraduate years to participate in programs that helped students with their transition into college. These opportunities paired with her work-study job in the advising office helped her realize that she wanted a career in higher education.
Becki enjoys helping students navigate their way to their degree, especially those who have had a disruption in their education. The highlight of her year is volunteering at Commencement and seeing students whom she has advised fulfilling their goals!
