What I enjoy most about working with students:

The opportunity¬†to connect, learn, and grow with students. Each student brings a different story and different experience to the University. Taking those experiences and connecting them to their overall goal is always such a magical adventure. Being a part of their journeys allows me to feel like I’ve done something right in life.
