Why I Enjoy Advising: We work directly alongside students during their journey toward academic, professional, and personal success. I’m at my best when called upon to help in that journey, and advising allows me the opportunity to help students and to learn from them every single day.

Why I Love SUU: The people I’m surrounded by each day: dedicated colleagues, creative compassionate, hysterical teammates, and determined, kind, intelligent students who are well on their way toward bettering the world.

What I Can Do For You: I take a holistic approach to student success and completion by factoring in a student’s personal, social, financial, emotional, developmental and cultural differences when advising each student.
