Advising Philosophy:   With academic advising a critical component of students’ educational experiences and undergraduate success, I work to encourage students to make educational decisions that support their goals, abilities and aspirations.  This collaborative relationship assists students in feeling a sense of connection, support and guidance while pursuing a degree in Sociology.
