Advising Philosophy

My advising philosophy is informed by Appreciative Advising and my personal values of respect, patience, and openness. My approach to advising continues to evolve as I grow as an advisor, and I welcome and encourage students to share their perspectives with me. I strive to cultivate a welcoming, equitable, and supportive experience for each student. 

I am committed to upholding the UC Davis Principles of Community and actively participating in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. I consider myself a lifelong learner and am dedicated to expanding my knowledge regarding DEI topics.

I am serving on the Academic Advising Mentoring Program (AAMP) Committee for 2023 – 2024.
