Greetings from Vero Beach!
My name is Janez Pierre, I am an Academic Advisor at
IRSC's Mueller Campus.
I am so glad you have decided to pursue higher education with our college. It will be my pleasure to help you complete this endeavor. Like you, I pursued a degree that would enable me to build on my passion and gain the knowledge and skills that would allow me to become a well-rounded, independent adult.
I obtained my Associate of Arts degree at Palm Beach State College. While I was working on my degree, I could not pass the anatomy and physiology class needed to get into the nursing program. I began to wonder if this was the right career for me. So I took a Career Assessment Test at PBSC's Career Center. The test results helped me to see that although nursing was an occupation that matched my personality, a few other careers that came up on my results were a better fit. Once I completed my General A.A degree, I Transferred to University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality and earned a Bachelors in Applied Science, majoring in Hospitality Event Management.
I worked in the Hospitality Lodging Industry for nine exciting years. I was able to travel, eat great food as well as meet and work with a diverse number of people in all walks of life. I decided to return to school and pursue a graduate degree at Florida Atlantic University majoring in Higher Education Leadership. I have since completed my master degree at FAU, and come to you with an understanding of what you as a student are experiencing from start to finish.
I aim to be your support system. It is my goal to help you in every aspect of your academic journey and career success. I will support, encourage, and push you to make your dreams come true. I will be as direct as possible so that you make ideal and realistic educational decisions. We will work together so that we can develop your best pathway to success.
I am honored and excited to be
“At your service.”
