Christopher Simmons joins Indy Reads as our new Student Navigator, a role that’s part counselor, data researcher, and student advocate.
His history in adult education, teaching, and workforce development means he’s well versed in crafting solutions to build students’ skill sets. He has administered one on one counseling and support to job seekers in both Kentucky and Indiana as a Workforce Development Coordinator and Instructor. Students will benefit from his experience creating specialized career development plans and instruction on job readiness, life skills, and job-specific certifications. He enjoys spending time with his wife and sons, 8 and 15, who are active in school and sports. Chris also enjoys engaging in hobbies of driving remote controlled vehicles of all kinds, maintaining his fish aquarium and spending time with close friends.
Chris’s comprehensive counseling, extensive knowledge, and connection to supportive services is a much needed resource for all of us at Indy Reads and we’re glad to have him on the team!
