Jennifer Duke
Academic Advisor/Transitional Studies Case Management Specialist

I am the Academic Advisor for Occupational Technology Programs as well as Transitional Programs here at Clovis Community College. I advise Automotive Technology, Cosmetology, Esthetics/Nail Technician, Industrial Technology and Welding majors as well as students working to develop their academic skills for access to college level coursework. I grew up here in Clovis and went on to attend college at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Prior to returning to Clovis, I gained 15 years of experience in higher education ranging from administration, college admissions and transfer articulation to academic advising. Whether you have questions about one of our Occupational Technology Programs and how they might best work for you, or if you’re brushing up on your reading, writing, or math in preparation for future studies, I look forward to working with you.
