Academic Advisor in Lawrence, Kansas
Developer || Empathy || Harmony || Achiever || Includer
Hello! My name is Jessica Stringer (she/her/hers), and I am an Academic Advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Center at the University of Kansas. Prior to working with the UAC, I served as a Pre-Education and Exercise Science Advisor with the School of Education at KU.
I'm a Jayhawk to the core, as I've not only had the pleasure of working at KU for the past five years, but I'm also a very proud alum (Rock Chalk!). During my undergraduate career at KU, I had the opportunity to work with so many fantastic Academic Advisors--both as a student and as a Peer Advisor with the UAC--who truly helped me discover my passion for working with college students. It means the world to me to now be able to "pay it forward" and support current and future Jayhawks throughout their own journeys!
When I'm not on campus, you can generally find me at home with my better half (Mark), our two cats (Lina and Juno), and our dog (Obi); attempting a new craft project inspired by Pinterest; binge-watching Marvel movies or tv shows; or somewhere out and about watching the Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC, or (of course) KU sporting events.
