What’s on your desk? Suzy Mix
Suzy Mix, the One Stop specialist for the Santa Clarita campus of Brandman University, has a view to envy from her desk on the second floor of the University Center on the College of the Canyon, the community college serving the north end of Los Angeles County. It looks out over trees, hills and a very familiar plaza. If you’ve watched the Audi A6 commercial featuring drones reenacting a scene from “The Birds,” you’ve seen what Mix can see every day.
More important to Mix, however, is the view the other direction which includes multiple pictures of her late basset hound Brutus, her current rescue dog, Hachi (a dachshund mix), and her 21 lb. cat, Mr. Pickle. They, and every Brandman student she meets, are her kids.
“I love my students,” she says. As a One Stop she guides them through financial aid and other challenges. Because she’s on the community college campus, she gets to see students in person as they start make the transition to the next phase of their education. “They all have good stories. I feel a little maternal toward them.”
