Julie Hamel

The University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS

As an Assistant Director at the University Career Center, I get to be an educator and a career coach, which is a perfect combination for my interests! I graduated from KU with degrees in Spanish & Education. After teaching Spanish for many years, I gravitated into counseling, first as a high school guidance counselor, and now as a counselor in higher education. In all of my work, I've loved watching people grow in knowledge and self-confidence as they transition through different stages of life!

When I'm not at work, I love to travel, hike, read, spend time with my family and my pets, and watch KU sports! I especially enjoy learning about and meeting people from other cultures.
