The College of Business would like to welcome Bridgette Sargent as our newest academic advisor. Her previous work experience has included working as a staff accountant at Kerber, Eck, and Braeckel, LLP, as well as Odum Accounting, and working at Transfer Student Services here at SIU. Her position on campus allowed her to gain experience serving and assisting SIU students.

Sargent is a two-degree graduate of the College of Business, earning both her undergraduate accounting and Master of Accountancy degrees from SIU. She said her excellent experience as a College of Business student influenced her desire to return to us as an academic advisor.    

Assistant Dean Jill Gebke said, “We are very excited for Bridgette to join our staff. Her experience as a professional in business will be a great resource for our students.”
