Jeanette Hickl is the Senior Associate Director for Student Engagement and Operations. Her primary functions include supporting Student Employment Team and the Internship Teams as well as overseeing our marketing and assessment efforts. Jeanette earned a M.S. in College Counseling from Radford University and a B.S. in Human Development with a concentration in Human Services from Virginia Tech. She likes helping UNT students because she loves hearing about a student’s experience and ensuring UNT Career Center is helping students reach their career goals. When she is not at UNT, she is spending time with her husband and two dogs. As a newbie to the area, she likes exploring what Denton has to offer. The best piece of advice she received was, “If you do not like where you are, move. You are not a tree.” She has been described as nerdy, empathetic, and a fixer.
