I am a Faculty Advisor because: my passion for advising comes from the same desire as my passion for teaching – I want to provide students with the best opportunity to succeed in their goals. This starts with helping others obtain the opportunity to continue their learning, assisting in finding the right education and career fit, and providing tools to help students succeed in courses and, ultimately, in obtaining their future career goal.
