  3. What I enjoy most about advising: I love meeting new students every day and problem-solving each unique situation. Being a community college student is tough and I admire each student who comes through my office for their determination and drive to reach their goals. My favorite moments are when students are excited to finally graduate and feel they have accomplished something big.
  4. When I was young I wanted to be: A cake shop owner, since I thought I could eat all the cake I wanted!
