Meet Keriann


Position: College and Career Specialist

Degree: Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, UAA | Associate of Arts in General Program, UAA

Personal Biography:  College was apart of the plan since she was in elementary school. She is a first generation college student and always felt she was at a disadvantage to her peers. She knew the life she wanted to live would need postsecondary education. Growing up playing competitive soccer, she always imagined she would play in college. Her plans changed when she got to her senior year and had no plan, fear of being rejected from colleges, SAT/ACT test anxiety, no drive to complete scholarship applications, a promise to herself to never take another chemistry course and a fear of committing to another four years of school. All of these factors contributed to her decision to attend University of Alaska Anchorage and pursure an Associate of Arts in Small Business Administration. She soon found herself pursuring an Associate of Arts in General Program, then a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition, then a Bachelors of Science in Dietetics, and then back to a Bachelors of Sciece in Nutrition. Although her path was a curvy one, she knows she made the right decision staying in her hometown. "College allowed me to grow academically, professionally, and personally. I learned things about myself and had experiences that I don't think I would have been able to outside of college and met people that will forever have an impact on my life. I chose to be a College & Career Specialist because I want to improve the lives of others by sharing the wealth of knowedge I have learned through my experiences."
