Director of Adult Recruitment
AYD Coordinator and PTK Advisor

Hello my name is Clarissa and I am the Director of Adult Recruitment at Ivy Tech Community College Richmond campus. I am here to assist any potential new or returning adult student (over the age of 19) who is seeking to enroll in college. With over 25 years of work experience within a community college setting, I have worked in various departments, such as, counseling, admissions, testing, nursing, career and transfer center, tutoring, and advising to name a few. Previously serving as the Director of Academic Advising, I provided service to students, staff, faculty, and the community for over seven and a half years. In August of 2019, I was promoted to the Director of Adult Recruitment where my talents and personality are able to shine through with this new population of undergraduates. I was once a student; so I understand how difficult college can be. I would like to be the first to welcome students to Ivy Tech!

A first generation college student, I began my studies at Riverside Community College and landed a job which turned into a career I love and admired. I received my Associates in Business Administration in 1996 where I concentrated my focused in management. I later transferred to California State University, San Bernardino and received Bachelor of Arts in Communication. Soon after, I completed my Master of Science degree in Education within the field of Counseling and Guidance in March of 2008. Presently, I am pursuing my doctoral degree in Education – Organizational Leadership at Grand Canyon University.

Again, I’ve spent several years in education and it is a wonderful career choice that I LOVE! I hope to be able to assist students with their academic planning and endeavors in the near future.  I truly believe, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~Maya Angelou.
