Advising Philosophy 

My advising philosophy as an advisor is to guide students throughout their academic careers and lead them on a path to success by embracing the diversity of their characteristics and learning styles. Not only do I try to encourage and respect their own goals, I want to strengthen their beliefs through the process of holistic advising to help them follow what inspires them.

My experience as a transfer student and a UC Davis Alumni has shaped my perspective when I advise students. I understand the obstacles that students’ face on daily basis including trying to find oneself in the midst of people. To find ones' own voice or even a clear direction for life after college, although difficult, is my mission.
