School of Social Work
I see mentoring as a range of interactions and relationships, both formal and informal, that can help a person both survive and thrive. As a junior faculty member, I am a mentor to students, while still being mentored myself by others as I work toward my career and personal goals. Both mentoring and being mentored have been very meaningful to me. I am eager to share my experiences and guidance in any way that can be helpful or meaningful for someone else. In particular, I had the experience of caregiving for an ill family member while completing my PhD and would like to be a resource to students who are in this situation.
