What is your favorite part about being an academic advisor:  I think my favorite part about advising is being a resource for students as they explore all that college has to offer. This community is filled with opportunities and opens up a lot of questions that many students will face and I get to help answer those questions and engage in some great conversations. I may ask difficult questions, inquiring what the dream is for you as a student, but I enjoy the conversations that come from the answers you create and the amount of thought that goes into getting that answer just right.

Favorite quote: “While we hope that our children do well in school, we hope with even greater fervor that they will do well in life. Our job is to help them know and appreciate themselves deeply, to be resilient in the face of adversity, to approach the world with zest, to find work that is satisfying, friends and spouses who are loving and loyal, and to hold a deep belief that they have something meaningful to offer the world.”
