Welcome to the College Advisor Page!

My name is Mackenzie Ironside and I am the new College Advisor through the Pennsylvania College Advising Corps. I graduated from PV in 2016 and completed a Bachelor's of Science in Health Policy and Administration (this would be the management side of healthcare) at Penn State University Park in 2019. I'm currently a candidate for a Master's of Healthcare Administration at PSU through World Campus, with three semesters left to graduation. Although I already have a Bachelor's degree and am working towards a second degree, I'm not sure what to do with my degrees. As a student myself who is still not sure what I'm doing when I grow up, I understand some of the uncertainty of the future that our students are experiencing. I'm here to help our students navigate the post-secondary path (the path after high school). 
 
When I'm not working or doing school work, I spend my time with my family and running with our three year old mini Labradoodle. I love watching sports and playing basketball when I can. I enjoy working with kids and young adults, and I look forward to working with our students to shape their future plans.
