Associate Professor of Practice Linda Vick was named Advisor of the Month for July 2021 by Virginia Tech Academic Advising Initiatives. She has been a part of the Virginia Tech community for more than 20 years, starting as an instructor. She became an academic advisor in 2006, and has seen more than 4000 undergraduates cross the stage. Vick has helped usher students into careers with institutions such as Disney, Hershey, Exxon Mobil, SpaceX, Tesla, NASA, and auto racing teams.  

Of her time as an advisor, Vick says: “The fun part is seeing our graduates get married and have kids, start their own companies, and do other cool things like finish Ironman triathlons and ultramarathons, travel the world participating in humanitarian efforts, compete in the Olympics, and generally be happy with life.”
