Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I'd like the student to drive the objectives, but overall I would say career pathing, goal setting, and leadership development are my areas of mentorship expertise.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Normally I am quite flexible and can do downtown Seattle either at my residence (common area in a tower) or at my place of work (Rainier Tower), on campus at SU, or somewhere in the middle. Open to virtual meetings and phone calls in the time of COVID.
