Danielle Bittner
Office Associate
203 Morrison Hall

Class year: Freshman
Major: Business Management
About Me: I was born and raised in Rossville, KS, a very rural community where everyone knows everyone. I was drawn to Wichita State's beautiful and inviting campus, and although it is much larger than I am used to, it still feels like home. I am pursuing a degree in Business Management and a Associates in Psychology. My hobbies include farming, jewelery and apparel designing, and photography. I love Wichita State and am very thankful for all of the opportunities it has given me. 


Jessica Allen
Office Associate
203 Morrison Hall

Class year: Graduate Student
Program: Masters of Education - Clinical Mental Health Counseling
About Me: I moved to Wichita from Orlando, Florida in August of 2020. I chose to obtain a degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling because I want to work with children. I have a background working with middle school students, and I have noticed that at this stage life can be very confusing. This has inspired my want to use my degree towards helping middle school students better understand life and cope with changes they may be going through.
