Allison Warner

What do you love about working at Green River?
The students – I am inspired each day by the students I serve. It is such a privilege to be part of their academic journey. I also love working in such a beautiful environment. The trees, trails and natural setting of our campus are breathtaking. Last year I was walking to my car near the LC after dark and a large owl flew past me and landed on a light post in the parking lot. It was an amazing moment to witness.

What does working in higher education mean to you?
Education and attainment of a college credential is like no other in its ability to unlock doors – doors that lead to increased knowledge and self-awareness, to better paying jobs, to social justice and to an overall better quality of life that can be passed down to future generations. We have a responsibility to our increasingly diverse community to offer these opportunities.

  1. Allison recently met with my daughter Francine and provided very good advice on navigating the combined transfer of her credits from here at Green River and her year of study out of state to the UW nursing program application. Allison also steered Francine toward other kinds of training that can enhance her transfer application.
