What mentoring means to me:

Mentoring is the most important role that faculty can provide a student or junior faculty. Mentoring is about helping the person recognize their full potential in a supportive and caring environment.

Topics I am willing to discuss with students:

Minority Experiences

  • Physical health and/or abilities and related discrimination.
  • Mental health and/or abilities and related discrimination.

Carla adds: I am not a minority, but I do recognize the disparities in healthcare.

Personal Circumstances
