Fort Myers and Estero, Fla., (May 19, 2009) – Patti Dennis has been appointed both the Enrollment Support Representative for the Institute of Interior Design at Southwest Florida College and the Assistant Director of the Guest Service Center at Southwest Florida College.
Dennis said her goal in her two new positions is to continue to grow the guest service department in a positive direction and to “reach out to more students and help them transition from the dream of being in the interior design field and helping to make it a reality for them.”
“I would like to see both Southwest Florida College and the Institute of Interior Design continue to grow and change lives,” said Dennis.
Originally from Kansas City, Mo., Dennis began her employment with the college as an admissions representative in January of 2005. In 2006, she was asked to join the guest service department, working first with high school students and then adult students in her position as a guest service representative.
Dennis earned her A.S. degree fashion merchandising and marketing from Manor Fashion Academy in Sacramento, Calif. She also earned a degree in computer networking from Sanford Brown College of North Kansas City, Mo.
“What I like most about Southwest Florida College is that every person is treated with care and respect,” said Dennis. “As a member of this family, I have become an important part of the overall mission to change one life at a time. My position here has a purpose and that purpose is seen every day in our hallways and in the faces of our students.”
In her free time, Dennis enjoys spending time with her family. She loves the beach and likes to explore new things in this area. Recently, she has gotten into kayaking.
“Patti’s positive team player attitude combined with her consistent performance is recognized as a valuable asset not just to the guest service department, but also to the college,” said Allison Parrish, Director of the Guest Service Center for Southwest Florida College.
