“I’d recently separated from the United States Marine Corps and had mixed feelings about going back to school. As you may well know, most veterans go through a rough transition from military service to civilian life. Considering my personal issues, Ines was able to help guide and mentor me back to the real world. She was so enthusiastic and caring about her profession that it inspired me to want to do better.

“Not only has she helped me prepare for a lifelong pursuit of enlightenment, (she) has also personally engaged me to never accept anything less than that of which I am professionally capable … I have attended other colleges in Florida, including Tallahassee Community College and Florida State University, and I must say this veteran’s office is by far the best I have had the pleasure of being a part of … She has been and continues to be a cornerstone of our proud institution.”

Paulino-Chindra received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in management from JU in 2012 and is currently pursuing a Master of Science organizational leadership degree.

“As a working parent of two girls, I know how difficult it can be pursue an education. It is my privilege to serve those who have serve our country and help them be successful at JU,” she said.
