Staff

Stephanie Jennings
Academic Advisor
“I enjoy the challenge of working with and supporting adult students so they can make informed decisions on how to earn their degree. Working with students as soon as they become a Baker Wildcat and following their educational journey all the way through graduation is a very satisfying career for me, and I am proud to be along for the ride with them. I also have a special place in my heart for our military students, having served as the School Certifying Official for the last several years.”

Carol Reed
Academic Advisor
“As an adult student and Baker SPGS graduate, I enjoy helping students throughout their Baker program. I love that I can share firsthand knowledge about the courses they are taking and the benefits of the programs. I also understand the commitment it takes to work toward educational goals while working full time and caring for a family. Being able to be a source of support to students and cheering them on is very fulfilling. My favorite part of my job is attending graduation and seeing our students celebrate all that they have achieved with family and friends.”
