"I had Milissa as an instructor my first semester as an official college student. I enjoyed having her as my instructor so much that I continued to see her for counseling services whenever, whenever I needed to make changes to my academic planning. She has been extremely helpful in my time at Inver, helping me in my decision of what to major in. I had a lot of confusion at first, about why I should be doing social work when my end goal was psychology, but she helped me to understand that. She has always pushed me to do my best and encouraged me when I thought I wasn't going to succeed. She always knew I would get the grade I wanted, but still told me that it was OK if I didn't. She has not only been an awesome help academically, but emotionally. She has been there for me in times when I was really struggling and told me it was OK to take breaks and ask for help. She is someone who didn't just treat her job like a job. She has been compassionate, caring, and understanding. Thank you Milissa! I appreciate everything you have done to help me and I'm so glad you were here to get me this far. You never gave up hope on me, even when I gave up hope on myself."
