Associate Professor, Assistant Dean for Diversity and Inclusion
School of Nursing
I mentor students because I know from personal experience how much this can mean for a successful career. I have had the privilege of working with many talented mentors at different stages of career who made it possible for me to be where I am today. I also have had some mentors who weren't as helpful, but I still earned important lessons from them that I'd like to think has made me a better mentor today. I want to pass it forward. I treasure the experience of watching students flourish and succeed. I currently serve on several PhD committees in my school and also work with junior investigators in my research area outside UB.
