Career Services Student Worker of the Month: Ravi Kaur

Classes and homework hardly slow Ravi Kaur down at work. The September Student Worker of the Month is busy this fall, though she takes on her tasks with a smile.
The Grand Canyon University senior, a health care administration major, serves as a student worker in Curriculum Design and Development at the 27th Avenue office. Kaur assists with a wide range of projects that help her develop skills that could someday help her in her career.
“I want to be an administrator for a clinic … in an ambulatory surgical clinic,” said Kaur, who started as a nursing major but realized in clinicals that she preferred the administration side of health care.
“I particularly want to work in risk management,” she said.
Kaur’s manager, Haydee Serna-Masters, nominated Kaur for the award — which is given out by GCU’s Career Services department, which organizes more than 1,600 student workers across the University.
“I nominated Ravi because I know I can trust her with really getting everything taken care of,” Serna-Masters said. “I know that I never have to think twice about something getting done.”
Kaur chose GCU because of her helpful enrollment counselor, the small class sizes, and the one-on-one attention from instructors. She said she enjoys her student worker position because of her friendly manager and coworkers, and appreciates the fact that she is treated as an equal.
