About Me

Arianna started working at GRCC in April 2020 as a Success Coach at the Lakeshore Campus. Four years later, she joined the advising team! She loves helping students. "There are no dumb questions," said Arianna. "Ask me, and I'll answer your question, or help you find the answer. We all really want to see you succeed at GRCC so don’t be afraid to connect."

Arianna loves seeing students grow in confidence and self advocacy, and take steps toward their big goals. This could look like many different things, such as improving their grade in a specific class they were struggling with, or finding a program they are passionate about. Success looks different for everyone and being a part of a student's success story is what excites Arianna most about her job at GRCC.

Arianna earned her bachelor’s degree at Central Michigan University where she majored in recreation and event management. While at CMU she was very involved on campus with student organizations, college events, and on-campus jobs. It was then that she realized she wanted a career working on a college campus. So she attended Grand Valley State University, and while working there as a success coach she earned her Master’s Degree in Higher Education. She enjoyed working one-on-one with students at GVSU and feels privileged to continue that work here at GRCC.
