I enjoy being a resource to students who have busy everyday lives. Advising encompasses so many different aspects — from providing resources to “teaching” students to find those resources, and really being an advocate.The personal relationship that you develop allows you to not only help the student to succeed and meet their educational goals, but also get through stressful times while meeting those goals!

What/Who is your biggest inspiration? Seeing others helping those in need.

What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show? "Grease" is my favorite movie and my favorite TV Show is "Madam Secretary."

What is one goal that you plan to accomplish during your adult lifetime? Take a hot air balloon ride.

What's the best thing about being an adviser? Having a trusting relationship with a student and watching him/her reach graduation.

What one word would you use to describe yourself? Helpful
