I am an Academic Advisor because: Growing up, I wanted to be a recreational therapist. When I was in college, I spent my summers as a camp counselor and found my love for youth development and mentoring. I had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad in England and had an amazing advisor who helped me tremendously and cared about me as a person. That’s when I knew I wanted to devote my career to helping college students. Being an academic success coach allows me to help students in multiple ways and I love that.
