Ashley Miller began her journey with Lindsey Wilson College in 2011. In 2016 she was invited to transition to the Educational Outreach team, first as their inaugural Success Coach and then as the Director of Online Student Success. As such, she not only collaborates with academic support services, faculty advisors, and instructors to monitor student progress and coordinate efforts to support student success but also serves as the online program's advocate for increased intervention protocols and program enhancements. "At the center of everything we do at Lindsey Wilson has been and will continue to be our students. Watching our students succeed and making sure they have the right tools to do so is my favorite part of my job." Miller noted.
Brooke, a Bachelor of Arts in Human Services and Counseling graduate said "Ashley was an essential factor in my success at Lindsey Wilson. I was in a delicate and insecure spot as I embarked on my journey to complete my degree after a 7-year gap. With her help and encouragement, I had the confidence to endure, and eventually finish what I started. I could never thank her enough."
Randall, a 2021 graduate of LWC and current Masters of Education in Counseling student said the support he's felt has been a "...cornerstone for me at Lindsey Wilson...I tried several different colleges all with failure due to different circumstances. [Ms Miller] is someone that I can talk to... always answers my 10,000 questions and listens to any worries that I have...Lindsey Wilson would not be the school it is without people like Ms Miller."
Ashley has served on many committees throughout the years at LWC but most recently was chosen to serve on the college's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Development Committee, focusing on "Stepping up for Success: A Three-Pronged Approach to Enhancing Student Success." This QEP will be a five-year program to focuses on increasing student support services. "It is my honor to be a part of a college that makes sure each and every student feels supported, seen, and valued, no matter if they come to us with no prior college experience, are career shifting to a new profession, or are finishing their degree after life took on another path before they could finish," Ashley said. "I believe Lindsey has been so successful with our online and extended campus programs because we see people first. Their journey before LWC, during LWC, and after LWC matters to us."
