"I just want to be there for students—to help them out with any questions they have or any concerns. I want to make sure that they are making the right choice for them when it comes to college, no matter what school they choose to attend."
Devon Kaufmann is a hometown girl at heart. After graduating from Illinois State University with a bachelor's degree in business administration and then working for three years at a commercial real estate firm in St. Louis, Missouri, she was happy to move back to her hometown of Quincy, Illinois. "I really missed the Quincy community and wanted to be closer to my family," she says.
After moving back home she discovered another reason to stay: Quincy University. "The students, faculty, and staff at Quincy make up a strong, tight-knit community. Everyone looks after each other here. It's sort of like family," she says.
Devon is known to be a diligent admissions counselor, doing her best to get information to students and parents as soon as possible. At the same time, she gets excited for the students she works with. She says, "I enjoy working with students—helping them with their questions and concerns and helping them realize their potential at Quincy University. It's so much fun to see them get excited about their future!"
