Brianne Morrison has an extensive history in higher education administration and student services. Her strength is in assisting students and families with navigating their way and persisting through higher education programs of study to reach personal and professional goals. Her areas of expertise include strategic goal setting, student development, career preparation and conflict resolution. Her personal advising philosophy is a blend of developmental and psycho-social theories that, in return, molds her practice of advising. Heavier on the developmental approach, she addresses student development needs in a holistic way characterized by a collaborative, casual approach. She approaches each advising session with a fresh perspective, granting all students the gift of acceptance and understanding, the ability to speak freely, the confidence to change their mind through the process of introspection and experience and support that leads to trusting the process of advising to help gain clarity for long-term and short-term goals.
