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

My major in college was Urban Education and I chose it because we work with a diverse population of students, and I believe as an advisor it is my responsibility to provide a supportive environment in which all students can grow and become future leaders.  Urban Education has helped in laying that foundation.

The top three life skills that I learned while in college are:
1) fortitude
2) teamwork
3) empathy

My favorite quote is:
As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good I was actually being re-directed to something better. 

If my life had a theme song it would be Never Would've Made It by Marvin Sapp.
