Career Counselor

Susan Thrower

20+ years advising - students, global businesses, and entrepreneurs.  

 

12 years of work experience at colleges - including 4 years in a consulting division at Georgia Institute of Technology.

 

Substitute high school teacher - 14 public and private high schools.  I've worked with the full range of teens, personalities, abilities, and motivations.

 

Passionate about working with students.  I came from consulting, so the rotation of clients and felt like I worked for over a hundred firms.  This was a valuable experience of gaining insights on a wide range of industries, careers, jobs, business challenges, and solutions.  Fast forward a few years to this career of student advising.  It is an honor to help young people find clarity for their career direction.  Every day is a process of learning and pushing the envelope to best serve individual client needs.
