Ease your student supervision speed bumps.

Consulting Services

Digital engagement is student engagement. I offer tailored consulting solutions and long-term thought partnership to help you maximize the potential of your online presence and engage with your community more meaningfully.

How I Can Help

I tailor my consulting services by campus to give you the support you need for clear answers, immediate improvement, and long-term transformation. Working together, we can evaluate your strengths, educate your team, and elevate your impact. Typically, I structure my consulting packages by the length of time needed to achieve our goals: twelve months, eight months, or four months.

Illinois State University, Division of Student Affairs Multi-Year Consulting

Client Challenges

The team at Illinois State University was so caught up in the day-to-day that they didn’t have time to see the big picture of digital engagement in student affairs, or how best to develop buy-in across the division. They aimed to be the premier student affairs division using social media, but didn’t have a roadmap for how to get there or feedback to tell them if they were on the right track.

How We Worked Together

Over the course of two years working together, our relationship included advisory services, as well as hands-on strategy and data analysis. That way ISU got the best of both worlds: macro vision and micro momentum.
