Jeanette Madkins Bio

Assistant Director

Personal Statement:
As a former Aggie, I am honored to be able to support Aggies as they discover who they are and who they want to be. College is a time of great excitement and discovery for students as they make lasting decision about their purpose in life. I truly appreciate the courage and resolve it takes for students to look within to better understand themselves and the world around them. With so many choices to make during college that may ultimately define their life direction, I encourage students to value how genuine relationships with others can restore and renew their sense of self and inner strength. On my off time, I like spending time with my family outdoors and I enjoy being a mother. I bake and read for relaxation, and I enjoy music, shopping, and exploring new travel destinations.
