Andrew Dezarn has been “answering the call” at Frontier Nursing University (FNU) for eight years this May. Andrew is the Associate Director of Financial Aid at FNU, contributing to the mission every day by providing students with ways to fund their education and professional growth.
Andrew grew up just 30 miles away from FNU’s Hyden, Ky. campus in Manchester, Ky., where he first heard about FNU. With a bachelor’s in history, he was drawn to FNU as an established, positive force in southeast Kentucky and beyond.
Andrew’s role in the financial aid office is as satisfying for him as it is helpful for the students he meets with.
“Working in financial aid allows me to help students achieve their goals of becoming FNPs and midwives,” said Andrew. “Financial aid can be intimidating for a lot of people, so it’s nice to be able to guide our students through the process and hopefully make it less stressful for them.”
Andrew works with four other co-workers in the Financial Aid Office and loves being a part of FNU’s mission.
When he’s not providing financial advice for FNU students, Andrew spends time with his friends and family, particularly his niece. He also loves reading about, watching shows on, and fixing up cars.
Thank you, Andrew, for serving the Frontier community!
