About me: 

I teach Career and Life Planning, Career Exploration, and Destination Graduation. Career counseling and advising services are available to my assigned advisees through the Advising Center.   My teaching style is a combination of lecture, short videos, and small and large group discussion.  On most days you will be exposed to new concepts, and have the opportunity to test your learning and explore new ideas with your  classmates. My role is to help each student connect with their passion and  choose a  major/career path that is realistic and the best possible fit for their interests,  values, and life goals.
