Mercedes Bounthapanya

Lawrence, Kansas, United States

I am a Career Center Specialist at The University of Kansas University Career Center. I schedule appointments for students with our amazing Career Coaching staff, and offer free smiles to those who stop by the front desk! I also help polish resumes that are submitted in our Resume Dropbox, and even help post jobs on career.ku.edu to further aid students searching for careers that range from temporary to permanent, and even internships. I'm also one who likes to talk, so come on by the UCC for a chat!

I am a Mathematics major with a passion for numbers. After college, I hope to teach high school Calculus. The limit for my passion for mathematics does not exist! In the long run I hope to become a certified actuary and work for a company.

I have a guilty pleasure for kittens, but I'm terribly allergic. Swimming is my favorite sport: I have been swimming for 8 years now. As for music, my other passion, I love to sing and have been in two choirs at KU. Although my major is serious, I'm far from that; I love sharing a laugh and I love to make people smile! I'm definitely an extrovert, and I embrace being weird/corky at any chance I get.

*I'm all about the Crimson and Blue! (Rock Chalk Jayhawk!)
