What is your approach to advising?
My approach to advising is person-centered, holistic, and strengths-based. Even when doing major related academic advising, it is still important to consider all other factors that have an effect on the student’s academic performance.   

What's your favorite part of your job?
Favorite part of my job: The relief or joy on a student's face when they finally see a solution to the problem they come to me with. 

What’s the most unusual job you've ever had?
I don't know if this counts as unusual, but during my undergraduate days I used to be a baker and cake decorator!
