Features & Perspectives



Name: Ann Flad-Jesion

My job here at Lakeland is assistant to the President

I’ve been here 10 years

The No. 1 thing on my bucket list is to travel with my family, either taking a mule trip into the Grand Canyon or traveling in India           

I love a lot of things about working at Lakeland, but one of the things I like most is running into students after they’ve graduated and seeing how successful they’ve become. That is incredible and heartwarming, and it’s the reason we do this.

Years from now, my favorite Lakeland memory will be: Jeez, I’ve got lots of great memories, but I think one of the best is meeting the parents of some of my international friends at graduation.

My best advice to students is, pick something to be involved in, talk to your professors early and often, cultivate a love affair with a daily planner and squeeze every bit you can out of college life.
