Our Academic Advising team is here to assist you with any questions you may have about Evergreen.
Kevin Andrew - Assistant Director, Internships & Employer Development
I moved to the State of Washington in July 2016 and have lived in Southern California, Arizona and New Mexico. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Arizona State University and a Master of Arts in Educational Administration from New Mexico State University. Before working at Evergreen I was the Coordinator of the centralized Cooperative Education and Internship Program at New Mexico State University. Prior to my career in higher education I worked in the private sector in department store and specialty store retail management. I am very excited to be part of the Academic and Career Advising team assisting students, faculty, staff and employers with opportunities related to internships and other experiential learning.
Edwin Bliss - Career Advisor
I have worked in the field of career and life development for most of my adult life. Later in my life, I decided to return to school and look at these issues from an academic and professional counseling perspective. I see my work as helping students and alumni decide not only what their life work might be, but how to develop strategies to move in the direction of their career dreams.
Ami Magisos - Internship Coordinator
I love helping students connect their education and career goals with the community. I advise students on integrating internship opportunities into their educational journeys at Evergreen, and connecting their internship experiences with their career goals and dreams. It’s a joy for me to help students explore these words from luminary Alice Walker: “Look closely at the present you are constructing: It should look like the future you are dreaming.”
I’ve dedicated my career to education as a pathway for community change and personal transformation. Prior to Evergreen, I served as the Access and Success Manager and Tribal Liaison at Peninsula College in Port Angeles, WA, with the privilege of guiding the House of Learning Longhouse team, Multicultural and Inclusion Services, and First Year Experience initiatives. Southern Arizona is my other home community, where I served many years as a teacher, trainer, and organizer in family literacy and civic engagement in adult basic education. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, Spanish, and Women’s Studies from The Ohio State University, and a Master’s in Education from Harvard in School Leadership and Development.
Tim Malroy - Career Advisor
I have worked in higher education, providing services to a variety of student populations, for the last 20 years. Previous to my work in higher education I was a social worker for Child Protective Services and employment specialist for Employment Security Department. My experience in student affairs includes educational planning, career advising, adjunct faculty in psychology and film, and 5 years as a conduct officer. I have also coached college basketball for the last 20 years. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Performance Psychology and hope to expand my work with students into the classroom and beyond. I am honored and proud to be part of the Career and Academic Advising team at Evergreen. My fire for empowering students to find their educational and career pathway is constantly stoked by my colleagues in Career and Academic Advising.
Ivana Trottman - Career Advisor
I learned about Evergreen first as a native Washingtonian and second as a grad student in Student Affairs Administration at Michigan State University (2014) where I was learning about how to serve college students and higher education. It was there I learned how misunderstood Evergreen was locally and how awesome it must be to have a role in the learning community here. My bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from Central Washington University (2012) plays a role in how I work with students as an advisor (both career and formerly academic at CWU) and how I engage with my peers and communities. At the end of my freshman year of college, the support I’d received from campus staff members inspired me pay it forward in service to college students as a professional. I love working with students one-on-one helping them achieving their goals. As a strong advocate for a balanced life, I spend my time away from work going to concerts, listening to audiobooks, participating in any game night I can find, preferably trivia, seeing independent movies, spending time with those I love and doing my best to be an informed and engaged citizen through active community participation.
