Hello, my name is Valerie Shaw and I joined the KSU academic advising team in January 2017. I am elated to be an Owl! Before I came to KSU I worked in a local public school, in Parent Outreach, and I’ve also worked as a guidance counselor in a Georgia high school. I have over 25 years of experience in academic advising and student affairs. I have worked in a number of colleges including Troy University, SUNY at Buffalo - E.O.C., UCLA, CSU - Los Angeles and West Virginia University. I have a M.A. degree in Counseling and a B.S. degree in Journalism from West Virginia University.
I enjoy working in Church ministry with my husband, who is a pastor. We have 5 children, one of whom is a KSU student, and 12 grandchildren, and many “church kids”. In my spare time I enjoy the arts, travel, visiting historical sites, and eating different types of cuisine.
