About Me

Hello, I am Ebonee Horn and I am the Career Services Director at Miles College. I am a lover of anything professional development, diy home projects, and true crime podcast. After graduating from Miles College with my bachelors of science in Criminal Justice and a dual minor in Political Science and International Studies, I started my career in customer services. I transitioned to social services and later found myself in the non-traditional education space in various capacities. My career transition inspired my aspirations to my current role. I have been in the higher education space for 6 years and I look forward to many more.
