Mentoring Objectives & Scope

I like working with my students to help them navigate the next phase in their lives. There can be a lot of uncertainty about entering the work world or making a career switch. I've navigated an unusual path to get where I am now, and I think that I can offer a unique perspective to students that want advice, guidance, or just an ear to talk through their concerns or questions as they navigate this next phase.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

I prefer meetings close to my office in downtown Seattle. I can accommodate coffee meetings during the work day, or in the evening after work.
