Kathryn White

I grew up in the small town of Tucumcari, New Mexico. I attended Northern Arizona University for my Undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. In May of 2016, I moved to Amarillo and started working at Amarillo College. In December of 2019, I completed my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from West Texas A&M University. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Riley and our two Boxer dogs Tiger and Bella. I enjoy working for Career Ready You because I get to help students get their GED, or advance their English skills, and move on to their college education. My primary industry is Healthcare, but I would love to serve any student that is needing help.

Ryan Francis

Since graduating with a Bachelors in Psychology and minor in Management in 2018, I have spent my time as a Career Navigator with Amarillo College. Raised in The Bahamas and having spent time in England and China, I look forward to meeting aspiring students from every walks of life. Being the youngest son of first generation college parents, and a first generation American citizen myself, I am geared up to help students get on, stay on, and triumph on their pathway to success in Business, industry trade, or other areas. No matter the barriers you face, I look forward to seeing you to your future and demonstrating Amarillo College’s Culture of Caring along the way.
