The Capital Times October 6, 2005 Name: Carrie Cochran.

Job: Student services adviser, adjunct faculty, Concordia University Wisconsin.

What I like best about my job: The positive impact that higher education has on my students’ overall growth. I enjoy helping others meet their education goals and watching them develop personally and professionally. Higher education has changed my life, and I choose to share my enthusiasm for education with others.

What I like least about it: There is a floor-to-ceiling window directly across from my desk. When the weather is nice, it can be distracting as I envision myself at Devils Lake or the Union Terrace. see here concordia university wisconsin

My best boss taught me: To think critically when making decisions and that treating people equally is not the same as treating them fairly.

My worst boss taught me: Why I needed to return to the classroom and continue my education!

I work best: In a fast-paced environment where I can utilize all of my communication and organization skills. My students are also my customers, and I strive for excellence in customer service through timeliness of response and a commitment to accuracy.

Education/experience: B.A. in management and communications with a minor in cultural studies and an M.S. in education counseling from Concordia University Wisconsin. I am working toward a doctorate in higher education leadership at Edgewood College. go to website concordia university wisconsin

My professional background is in quality systems and human resources. I have been employed with Concordia for the last four years in student services and admissions and as an adjunct faculty member. I teach human resource and study skills classes.

Birthplace/home town: Ripon.

Where I live: Sun Prairie.

Family: Fiance, Jack; one pet, an Australian silky terrier named Mrs. T.

Age: 42.

Person outside my family I most admire: Jack Buri, corporate secretary and senior attorney at Alliant Energy. His patience, sincerity, work ethic and drive are quite inspiring to me.

My real passion is: Helping others. I have found over and over again that all things are possible through faith, perseverance, support and guidance.

Favorite place to go for enjoyment: Cultural events and any place having to do with fine, creative cuisine.

Music, munchies and mantra that get me through the day: I like to listen to Magic 98 and 93.1 The Lake during the day. Lately I have been munching on Rice Krispies Treats and Kudos bars at my office but would eat French toast 24-7 if I could. Mantra: Take one day at a time.

Most valuable lesson I’ve learned: If you do not enjoy what you do, you have less chance of being productive and successful.

Looking at me you’d never guess: That I was recently thrown from a galloping horse!
