Featured in the Winter 2007 issue of the Strictly Business magazine:
Not a single Eberhardt student graduates without needing to put in an application, make a change in their schedule, write a memo to a dean, ask a question about a registration process, or set up an appointment to discuss their future. Because of this, students are bound to cross paths with either the Undergraduate Administrative Assistant, Lynette Zenor or MBA Program Assistant, Debbi Bell.
Debbi Bell has been the MBA Program Assistant for three years. She works with the members of the MBA team: Associate Dean, Ron Hoverstad, Director of Student Recruitment, Chris Lozano, and the Director of MBA Career Services, Margaret Roberts. She helps them in recruiting MBA students and providing assistance to the students throughout their studies in the Eberhardt MBA Program.
Debbi is currently a student herself, having gone back to school two and a half years ago. This semester she has started in Pacific's CPCE evening degree program where she will earn her B.S. in Organizational Behavior in May 2008. In her spare time, Debbi enjoys playing the piano, hiking and camping, while taking lots of pictures in the process. As a student, pastor's wife and worship leader, she laughs, "What spare time?"
Debbi loves working with MBA students and feels modeling is an important way to teach others. Because of this, Debbi models excellent customer service to our students because she feels it as such a crucial business skill.
