Kirsten Rawding

Success Coach

FYE Success Coach Kirsten RawdingHi everyone! My name is Kirsten, and I am one of the success coaches here at Lane. Having been a first-generation student who decided to go to college a thousand miles from home, I understand how difficult it can be navigating college processes and resources, while juggling everything else in life. As a success coach, I am here to support you on your educational journey, and aid you in developing and achieving your goals at Lane and beyond. First Year Experience is an ideal starting point that can help you define your career and life goals, find balance, and so much more! 

After earning my BA, I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I continued working in higher education, and discovered that was my real passion! I recently finished up my M.Ed. in college student services administration, to get the tools to make a positive and lasting impact on students. I am now doing exactly what I wanted to do, helping students reach their dreams! My coaching philosophy fosters an individualized approach with each student I work with, while lifting diverse voices and advocating for students. I look forward to working with you all!  

Success Tip: If we do not know the answer to a question, we will most certainly send you in the right direction, so don’t be afraid to ask! Asking questions is essential to success in college, and we are more than happy to help you.
