Q: Why did you get into academic advising?

"After graduating from UCSB, I went to work in the private sector for several years in sales and management. While I enjoyed that initial career, I missed higher-level education and ultimately decided to come back and work at the university. I now feel that I have found my calling in academic advising, and I greatly appreciate that all of my work goes directly towards helping others. College advisors care a lot about students' wellbeing and success, and we want to assist however we can. Undergraduate education can be a tricky path to navigate, and I hope that students know that they do not have to do it alone."
