- Student Success Specialist, Graduate Programs
Kelli Cameron is a Student Success Specialist for Buena Vista’s Graduate Programs. Located on the Storm Lake campus, she works with the Organizational Leadership, Professional School Counseling, and Clinical Mental Health Counseling graduate programs. She enjoys working with adult learners while they pursue their master’s degree at BVU. She provides students personalized support from enrollment to graduation. “It is a rewarding feeling to be able to play a part in such a monumental event in students’ lives,” says Kelli.
Studying to get your master’s degree while working full time is a big commitment that requires a lot of planning and detail, and Kelli understands this. “As a student at BVU, I always felt like I was never a number. I had someone who genuinely cared about what was best for me and my future. Now as a staff member, I try to give that same dedication to the graduate students I work with,” says Kelli. “They might not have time to remember all of the small details and that’s where I try to help make it a little easier for them.” Our graduate students enjoy working with Kelli and appreciate the support she provides throughout their time as BVU students.
Kelli received her bachelor’s degree in Management and Entrepreneurship from Buena Vista University where she also played on the women’s basketball team. After graduation, she worked in Des Moines, IA, in the financial industry and then as a manager in the automotive industry before locating back to Storm Lake, IA. She and her husband, Michael Cameron ’05, have two children, Tyler and Blake. You can find them on the lake boating in the summer or supporting the Storm Lake Tornadoes and Buena Vista Beavers throughout the year.
