Hello, I’m Dr. Karina Dusenbury…
I spent 15 years on college campuses helping students make wise academic and professional choices. Now, I use my expertise to equip future college students with the knowledge and skills they need to do the same.
When students know how to make wise major and career choices, they are better prepared to take charge of their professional lives…no matter what job or career changes await them.
