There’s now one more way for students to succeed at Logan. This spring, Logan’s Department of Academic Affairs added two Academic Success Coaches to help students with every step of their education.
Meet Anna Schowalter, MAT, Academic Success Coach for the College of Chiropractic, and Casey Bryzeal, Academic Success Coach for the College of Health Sciences. Both will be working closely with students, helping them register for classes, track their progress and overcome obstacles.
Since 2013, Anna has held a position in Logan’s purchasing department, where she coordinated graduation and awards ceremonies. Previously, she worked as a high school math teacher and tutor. Anna holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Management from St. Louis University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Webster University.
“I am thrilled to get back into academics and return to working directly with students,” she said. “I am looking forward to guiding students and connecting them with resources that can make their path to graduation easier.”
“My position offers students a neutral party as they navigate each trimester at Logan,” she said. “Many students don’t realize how rigorous the DC program is until they begin taking classes. My goal is to be a one-stop resource for students so they can focus on their studies.”
Casey has been at Logan for nearly five years, most recently serving in the Human Performance Center, where she advised and registered students in the Master of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation program. “I truly enjoy working with students and making a difference in their educational experience at Logan,” she said. “Advisors can have a tremendous impact in the success of a student and I am looking forward to serving as a central source of communication for students.”
Casey earned a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication, with an emphasis in Public Relations and Management from Southeast Missouri State University. She will be working with master’s and undergraduate students in the College of Health Sciences.
“I am excited to work together with Anna to ensure dual degree students are on the right path and fulfilling all the requirements for both degrees,” she said.
The two Academic Success Coaches will also join forces to offer student workshops on time management and other topics of interest.
