Jason Blankenship

Academic Advisor

Academic Success Center


Jason has spent the majority of his career in high education, including more than 12 years in academic advising, as well as national scholarship advising, teaching, and administration. He holds an undergraduate degree in anthropology and master’s degrees in English literature and mental health counseling. In addition to his work in higher ed, Jason has served as a therapist at a community mental health agency, a hospital, and in private practice.  His most rewarding role remains his work with undergraduates, especially being present with students as they explore how their personal values and goals connect to academic interests and options, all the while learning more about themselves. A transplant from Kansas City, Jason is appreciating the varied experiences provided by the Las Vegas area and will gladly swap icy roads for the summer heat.
