Fern Daum

Hello to all! My name is Fern, and I am the newest member of the COSI Success Team! I’m a Colorado Springs native who recently graduated from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I have three pets – a dog named Winnie and two parrots named Pippin and Pepe. In my free time I love to read (tell me about your favorite books!), hang out with my pets, watch anime, or play an occasional video game. Prior to joining the COSI Success Team, I was a math and biology tutor in the Learning Commons, so you might have already seen me around campus.

I’m also a Pikes Peak State College and COSI alumni, so I’ve been exactly where our COSI Scholars are and am all too familiar with the struggles students might be facing - as a student and also as a COSI Scholar. As a coach, I hope to support students in their endeavors at Pikes Peak State College and beyond. I look forward to getting to working alongside everyone to help our students navigate this crazy experience called college!
