Mentoring Objectives & Scope

Most of my working career has been in the human resources fields, following initial work in the operations, and I have worked with students in areas including Personal Development, Employment, Talent and Career Management and related areas. In my career, I have also partnered closely with businesses and been part of the business strategy – primarily in technology, but also financial services, applications development, transportation and hospitality. In those businesses,  I have worked with a wide variety of departments including IT, sales and marketing, field services, product management, customer Service and operations and can offer some perspective about those types of functions.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

I can be pretty flexible - our offices are close by SU in downtown Seattle.

Additional Information

I look forward to discussing the school and working experiences that the students have had and I always end up learning new things myself in working with the students.
