If I wasn't an Academic Advisor I would have been a writer.

My major in college was Social Action Research and I chose it because I'm interested in collective initiatives for social change.

The top three life skills that I learned while in college are:
1) not to treat feelings like facts
2) there's always a way to work things out
3) follow your gut

My favorite quote is:
The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater. (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring)

If my life had a theme song it would be Don't Stop Me Now by Queen.
