Associate Dean of Students of Advising Programs, Georgia Gwinnett College

Dr. Charmaine and I first met when she partnered with my company with her first-generation college student mentoring program at Georgia Tech. During our first meeting, I immediately thought to myself, ‘she is the real deal.’ She’s an impeccable speaker which is not only due to her being a well-respected scholar and practitioner about first-generation college student success, but also by her ability to quickly captivate audiences with her authenticity and relatability. There’s a warmth about her that’s pure which leaves people wanting more because of it. Dr. Charmaine has my highest recommendation! I’m blessed our professional paths have crossed.
