However, Katharine found her home at Appalachian State University when she joined the Student Learning Center in 2017.  Katharine currently serves as the Director of University Tutorial Services at the Student Learning Center at Appalachian State University. At the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, a Minority Serving and Hispanic Serving designated institution, Katharine oversaw the first-year seminar program on campus for exploring majors whose population included first-generation, ethnically diverse, low-income, and academically underprepared students. With a passion for encouraging students to achieve their academic and career aspirations, she draws upon her extensive experience in career services and academic support services to provide students with the knowledge and tools to manage their own college success.
