We’re excited to formally announce that Kelly Bernardo was selected and has begun her new role as the Coordinator of Service-Learning.  In this role, Kelly will manage all student-facing initiatives, presentations, and events, with a specific focus on service-learning experiences prior to a student’s senior year.  Kelly earned her Bachelor’s in Psychology and her Master’s in Counselor Education, both from the University of Central Florida.  Kelly’s previous experience in advising, tutoring, and social services has served our office well since she first joined FGCU in 2021 as our Program Assistant.  Kelly is known by students and staff alike as a friendly face and welcoming ear to discuss just about anything you have on your mind.  Her calm demeanor and problem-solving skills have been a major asset to our work.  We’re very excited about her passion and ideas regarding future growth and development for service-learning at FGCU.
