Suzanne Coolbaugh-Walker is a Boilermaker grad (B.S. Psychology, M.S. Counseling Psychology) with a penchant for over-using the semicolon. Her academic background is in psychology and counseling psychology (here comes the semicolon); her Master's thesis on identity and leadership development and mentoring led her into the college student services field. During her stay-at-home mom gig, Suzanne nurtured a love for photography and graphic design, and she helped launch and grow a successful digital scrapbooking company from 2003 until 2009 when she began working in the College of Technology as an academic advisor. In 2013, Suzanne moved into a newly-created position in Aviation Technology, and now focuses on recruiting, retaining and career services for students in Aviation Technology. In her spare time, Suzanne is a freelance graphic designer and photographer specializing in senior portraiture. Her 4 children, however, ensure that free-time is minimal.
