Dana Hamilton, M.Ed.
I love helping people make informed decisions about their education and career plans. An understanding of one’s strengths can positively impact the decision-making process. Using the Highlands Ability Battery and in-depth interviews, I help students and adults gain insight and apply this information to facilitate meaningful professional and educational development.
With over 10 years of experience working in university academic advising centers and in conjunction with career counseling centers, I have seen the importance of intentional educational and professional planning. Through this work, I have helped students choose degree programs, reevaluate majors, and plan meaningful coursework in addition to exploring related potential careers. The Highlands Ability Battery allows me to now help students understand the relationship between their natural abilities, their education, and their professional goals as well as to assist adults in their career transitions.
