Career Services

Current Peer Advisors


I am a junior at Central Washington University and I plan on majoring in Nutrition, with a possible specialization in Dietetics.  I was born in Wenatchee, Washington, but I moved to Darby, Montana, when I was in the fifth grade.  I obviously missed Washington because I moved back to attend school, which was a pretty big move for a girl who had always been with her parents.

I love working with people and I am a VERY talkative person, so any job that requires talking, I am all for that!  I can be shy, though, so it all depends on the environment. Once I am comfortable, there is no stopping me. I am excited to be working with Career Services because it is a great way for me to work on my weaknesses and use my strengths. I enjoy helping others and this is an amazing opportunity to work with fellow students, as well as faculty.


Maddie Dugan

This is my first year at Central Washington. I am originally from Bellevue, WA and have lived there the majority of my life. I graduated from Bellevue College with my Associate’s degree in Arts and Sciences, with a concentration in Theater Arts. My interests and hobbies are very diverse, and I get the most joy out of working with people and working within various creative outlets. I have transferred this year as a junior and I am pursuing a degree in Theater and Social Services (yes, I am aware that I am probably insane for wanting to graduate with two very different degrees). My goal is to pursue a job in social work during the day while I try to live the actor life at night. Eventually I plan on getting my Master’s degree in Social Work with hopes of working with children and youth, preferably in the mental health industry. In general, I have a goofy, warm-hearted personality and I love to make people laugh!

I am excited about joining the Peer Advising team, because it fuels my desire to help people. I am a compassionate person who enjoys helping people in many different capacities. I have a wide variety of work experience, and I hope to gain more experience with advising. I look forward to assisting students with their personal career development, as well as finding my own career development within this position. I have benefited in the past from career advising while I was obtaining my Associate’s degree, and I get excited about passing the information I benefitted from to other students.


I am currently a senior here at CWU and I am working on a sociology major, event planning minor, and a business minor. I moved from Sumner, WA, to Ellensburg last year and I absolutely love it here. My family and friends mean everything to me, so I love that Central is not too far from my home town. This is my first year working as a peer advisor and so far I really enjoy it.

My goal is to become a wedding planner and to also plan events for nonprofit organizations. I hope to use the skills I have learned here at CWU to create extraordinary events for those working with small budgets. I love the challenges that go into being a successful planner and I look forward to making event planning my career.

I have a heart to serve others and help them in any way that I can. I definitely love to plan and stay organized. One thing I really like about the career services office is that they give students the tools necessary to map out their future and guide them towards success. This office puts students at ease and makes choosing a career far less daunting. The career services office is filled with wonderful faculty and it is a friendly environment to receive assistance. I enjoy being a peer advisor because I like working with people and it allows me to help other students develop their professional skills and I am able to learn a lot through this experience.

I am a Psychology major, with two associate degrees in Sociology and Ethnic Studies, I plan to graduate this Spring 2015. I would like to work in a University setting after I graduate, either working as an Academic Advisor or in a specialized program for students on campus. I really love this job because it allows me to work one-on-one with students and practice my counseling skills. My goal as a student is to learn as much as I can, so that I can pass on my knowledge to others.

I am from Seattle, but I was raised in Yakima, WA. After I graduate I would like to move back to the Seattle area, I am definitely a city girl. My hobbies include: creative writing, listening to music, watching movies, and hanging out with my family. I am also a huge animal lover, and can’t wait to have my own house where I can have all the animals I’d like.

Corbin Sims

I am in the business program here at CWU and I am working towards a dual specialization in both Marketing and Finance. I love sports and growing up in Kelso, WA I played football, basketball, (and my favorite) baseball for all four years. So upon graduation I would love to turn my degree into a business career in the sports industry.

My mom and dad are both public school teachers, and I think I got the passion to help teach from them. I also have one sister who is 16 months younger than me who will hopefully become a Central Wildcat next year! I have no pets, which is sad because I want a bulldog very badly. Unfortunately, I am also allergic to dogs and my apartment complex doesn’t allow dogs. So it is a work in progress.

This is my first quarter with Career Services so I am very excited to jump right in and start interacting and helping students. I am very grateful I have a job with these awesome peers and get to connect with people on a daily basis and help them with their professional goals.
