As a proud Las Vegas native, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Nevada State College. It was while I was a student at Nevada State College that I found my passion for higher education and working with students. From there I continued to graduate school completing a master’s degree from Kansas State University in Academic Advising. I have worked in higher education for over ten years. Prior to becoming an academic advisor, I worked as a college career advisor and instructor teaching academic and career success courses. As a first generation and non-traditional student I have learned from my own personal experiences and strive to assist students with their journey to accomplishing their academic and professional goals.
Hello! My name is Kendall Sanders and I am a born and raised Las Vegas local. I have earned a bachelor’s degree in communication with an emphasis in leadership from Dixie State University. This is where I found my love for higher education and supporting student success. I started my journey at Touro University in the bursars office where I also earned my MBA with a concentration in Marketing. My passion is found in student success. I am honored to be a part of the Academic Advising team. Guiding students on their educational path is rewarding. We all come for various walks of life seeking success. I’ve found my home at Nevada State and am so proud to be a scorpion!
I came to NSC as an Academic Advisor in March 2022, after spending 15+ years working in education abroad at the university level. I grew up on a farm in rural Minnesota, but today I love living in the desert. My degrees are in English (BA) and Counseling and Student Affairs (MS), both from Minnesota State University Moorhead. My time in education abroad has given me an appreciation for other cultures and customs, and I fully support NSC’s mission of community, diversity and equality.
