Ask the Advisors - Human Service Degree Completion
Hello and welcome to Southern Oregon University. My name is Tiki Boudreau, and I am an advisor for both the Human Service Program and the Psychology Degree Completion Program in Medford. I teach courses in practicum, group dynamics, program development, capstone, lifespan development, and general psychology. You will not only have me as your advisor, but you’ll probably have me as an instructor as well.
I, myself, am a graduate from SOU. I returned to the Rogue Valley in 1993 and decided to enter college as a non-traditional student. I am so glad that I did! From the very first class that I attended in psychology, I knew that I loved the field. After receiving a BA in psychology (2000) and a MAP (2002) in Organizational Training and Development, I was fortunate to work closely with the great faculty and staff here at SOU. With a special interest in practica and experiential learning, I have served as the practicum coordinator for students doing volunteer work in the community for academic credit under the psychology department since 2003. It is exciting to watch students apply their new knowledge, while also gaining applicable skills doing their volunteer opportunities. I transitioned to the Medford campus degree completion programs in 2004, and I thoroughly enjoy helping students in the process of achieving degrees.
I currently live in Ashland, and am the mother of two wonderful children. It has been a pleasure to watch them thrive in our quaint local community. Some of my favorite hobbies include hiking, camping, rafting, gardening, traveling, and enjoying life with my family.
