My name is Colleen Lyons and I am a lifelong learner. I have a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Political Science, with a focus on Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Asian Studies and Islam in International Relations. I also hold two master degrees; one in Higher Education Administration and the other in Public Administration from Florida International University. In addition, I am a certified Professional Life Coach and registered Mental Health Ambassador. I have a very diverse employment history containing years of experience in higher education, recruiting for the Walt Disney Company, the mortgage industry, sales and customer service.
During graduate school, I focused primarily on veterans. I wrote my thesis on restructuring the Department of Veterans Affairs mental health delivery system. I am a huge veteran and mental health advocate. I volunteer with two other non-profit organizations that focus on helping veterans reenter the civilian workforce. I love helping out others and each day is very rewarding. Lastly, if you can dream it, you can do it!
