        About Cynthia Kabat King:
        A transplant from
        Madison,         WI where I grew up and received two college degrees         from the University of Wisconsin-Madison:


              B.S. Education: certification in special education k-8                    


              M.S. Rehabilitation Psychology Certificate in Women’s           Studies.        


I was         director of Career Services at a         Madison         non-profit organization for 10 years before I moved with my husband Ted         to the Idaho Clearwater Forest. It was there I had my first opportunity         to work with a college student services program. Our son Sean was born         in Idaho far away from both our families so when Ted’s Forest         Service career provided an opportunity for us to relocate to         Athens, we took it. I         worked for Hocking College’s Alternative Education program from fall of         1994 as a counselor for nontraditional students until August 1999.


I         came to Ohio University August 2, 1999 as the CAP Coordinator with the         Academic Advancement Center (AAC) and also “jumped” into the Precollege         program my first day on the job.  I continue to enjoy working with         Precollege and meeting incoming freshman and their parents as they         experience their first days at Ohio University. I became the director of         the Academic Advancement Center on January 1, 2003 after participating         in a national search/selection process.  I am pleased to work with and         represent the professional staff of the AAC.  Every member of the staff         is a highly trained professional, dedicated to student success and         extremely competent at his or her job.  I truly believe the AAC makes a         difference in lives of OU students and I continually strive to bring the         best academic support resources to them.


I         enjoy time with friends, a good book, gardening, hiking, but most of all         spending lots of time with my son and seeing life from his fresh         perspective. My guiding career force is to help people reach their goals         by connecting them with the resources (inner and outer) to be successful         in attaining those goals.
