Advising Philosophy

My advising philosophy focuses on centering individuals while helping students navigate the numerous challenges of attending university. I am aware that while navigating university may be simple for some, it can be a complex process for others. I strive to understand the diverse needs of our student population, and through advising, I attempt to eliminate the disparity of academic support that some communities face in our current society.

I intend to make sure that students feel adequately supported, understood and confident to move forward in their academic career. I strive to empower students, encouraging them to build upon their strengths and guide them to the future that they envision for themselves.
