2022 Region 2 Steering Committee Election

Membership and Mentor Coordinator

Diana Keay

Bilingual Latina Student Success Advisor leading mentorship and retention programs in the largest college at George Mason University. Eager to expand Region 2 membership numbers and diverse opportunities for our community!

Finding connection and community can be rare these days. For advising professionals, it is encouraging to know that these bonds can be found through NACADA membership and mentorship. My experiences as both a member and Region 2 mentee have enabled me to flourish as a professional advisor, develop friendships, and rely on colleagues for support and guidance. The pandemic has been challenging, and throughout this time, my mentor relationships have proven an invaluable resource. Whether mentor or mentee, we offered inspiration to persist toward continued success for ourselves and our students. If chosen to serve as your Region 2 Membership and Mentor Coordinator, I will strive to afford members with the same opportunities to learn from one another, provide resources and information regarding formal and informal mentorship, assist practitioners to find connection, purpose, and meaning within our profession, and cultivate an environment where regional voices can help create future programming.
