Gerard Xavier – Employee Profile
For the past 23 years Gerard Xavier has been a mainstay in Madison College’s counseling department, both counseling and teaching students.
In that time, he has impacted the lives of countless students.
We sat down with Gerard as he was planning for retirement to talk about his experiences at the college.
What does retirement look like for you?
I have deliberately not made many plans.
I am a real-estate entrepreneur, so I’ll keep busy with that. But my goal is to have more flexibility with my time. Flexibility to travel to visit friends and family.
The one big commitment that I’ve made to myself is to exercise more, but aside from that I’m just looking forward to the flexibility.
No doubt, Gerard will be missed by colleagues and students alike, but he can retire knowing that he’s had a profound impact on many lives. When we asked Gerard about whether he’ll continue counseling in some form, he told us, “never say never.”
