Years as an academic advisor:
What is one of your favorite parts of your role as an advisor?
Every conversation leads to learning new information, new knowledge, and no two conversations are the same.
What is one piece of advice you would offer to a brand new advisor?
Examine all the unique ways to advise and create your own combination of advising. Learn from every student and find ways of making connections to life events whether it be sports, pop culture, stories, movies, animals, or life in general.
