Lisa Lyons is one of our newest advisors in the college, starting in July 2021. She advises elementary education, transitions to teach and graduate special education.

However, Lyons has over 16 years’ experience in higher education and advising, having previously worked at Saint Xavier University in Chicago. Lyons received her bachelors in English and Masters in College Student Personnel both from Western Illinois University.

Her advice to CHESS students is, “Make the most of your college experience, explore, ask questions and make connections. Don’t be afraid if you do not know something. It is ok to ask for help.”

"Don’t be afraid if you do not know something. It is ok to ask for help."
