Why I love advising: I have been working with college students for over 25 years, and I love the different relationships that I form with these students. I strive to really get to know my students. I want to know about their family, interests, and their college and life experiences. I see advising as a partnership between me, the advisor, and the student. We work together to make decisions, overcome obstacles; we try to handle anything that life throws at us. Advising is a huge responsibility. Every student I meet, I have an effect on him/her whether I see it or not. I have a chance to help someone improve their life. I cannot think of anything more special than helping change a life for the better.
