A Conversation with Cynthia

How do you help students in your current role?

I am called to give students direction, whether it’s via email or by helping those who walk into the Advising Office with appointments. Whatever the case, I like to take each opportunity I am given with a student to offer a positive word of encouragement.

What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy challenges, so I love the array of challenges I am tasked with daily. There’s little room for boredom in my work life!

You’ve had quite a varied career! How did you become the Administrative Assistant II in Advising, and how did all your previous jobs prepare you for this?

My career has been built upon acquired skills and education over a lifespan! All the roles I have filled in my lifetime have equally prepared me for this current position at A&M-Commerce. I’m required to be ready and up for a challenge at all times. I must be informed, prepared, adaptive, resourceful and productive. And even though I’ve held many jobs and positions, I’ve learned to equip myself with all those things, no matter my role!

What is an important life lesson you’ve learned?

There is little else worth more than one’s peace of mind. Finish every task you complete before it’s due, and finish the task you dread the most first. These simple things will help you maintain your peace of mind.

What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?

Choosing A&M-Commerce will be one of the most rewarding decisions you make! The campus offers quality education at affordable prices and the safety of a small town with large-city opportunities. Our smaller campus not only gives students the chance to make life-long friends and even career connections, but it allows students to learn about a multitude of cultures and ways of life.
