Additional Information

I mentor students because I care about their future path ahead. I didn't have a mentor when I was graduating from WSU in 2005 and because of it, I struggled to find my first job. Once I realized the importance of a mentor I started to thrive because I aligned myself with these amazing resources. I don't want to see other students go through that process so I've dedicated my free time to working with students at both Washington State University and Western Washington University in their mentor and leadership program.
