Image“Dr. Gail Cole-Avent has got to be one of the most passionate and inspirational advisors to ever work in Golden Key. Despite the copious amounts of work she deals with as the Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs and University Ombudsperson at the University of Miami, Gail always finds time to help our Golden Key Chapter excel in every way. Our University of Miami chapter has risen to the Gold Standard level in recent years, and Gail has been a huge part of that success. She has earned the loyalty and admiration of the entire E-board with her laid-back style, bubbly personality and good humor. Gail is so much more than just an excellent advisor – she’s a wonderful friend to us all, and we are lucky to have her in our lives.”
