Living the SU Mission in Your Career

“Seattle University strengthened my passion to serve our community and reminds me that my place in this world was not to live a singular life, but to support and help others.” – Ann Yoo, ‘98, Board of Governors President.

As Ann puts it, a Seattle University education isn’t just about learning how to be successful in your career once you graduate. It’s more than that; it’s also about what kind of person you want to be in your personal and professional lives.

It may not always be obvious how to extend your Seattle U education and its mission into your career, but that's exactly what we will tackle at our next SU Advantage Networking Night. So join us Wednesday, November 1 for “Living the Seattle U Mission in Your Career”.

The event promises valuable discussion and interaction with five alumni panelists who currently sit on the Board of Governors. Ann Yoo, ’98, Nicole Hardie, ’98, Mikel Sagoian, ’12, Matt Iseri, ’05, and Chris Sample, ’11, will share with you their experience of how they have successfully extended Seattle U’s long-standing mission and values into the workplace.

“The values of treating the whole person and… serv[ing] each other in community have guided me in my daily work,” Nicole Hardie, a flight nurse for Airlift Northwest, says. Her commitment to her work not only as an exemplary nurse, but also as an emotional caregiver during times of crisis, shows how the lasting effect of her Seattle U education challenged her to go beyond what is required and do what is right. “It is those values that I hold closest to me as I meet people in their tragedies.” 

“To me it means treating others how you would want to be treated,” Chris Sample, PACCAR Area Operations Manager for the PacLease Division, says about his ideal working environment. “The key to any successful business or social movement is to open lines of communication where everyone is heard and no one fears sharing ideas.”

On November 1, our panelists will share valuable insights into their path in a variety of fields and explore lessons learned along the way. Following their discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to network with each other and the panelists.

In addition to the main event, there will be an optional networking lesson with event moderator, Elizabeth Atcheson, Founder of Blue Bridge Career Coaching, at 5:30 p.m.
