Advising Philosophy:

My advising approach centers on supporting, advocating for, and mobilizing students across a range of backgrounds during their career as an undergraduate student. I aim to create an equitable and welcoming environment and ensure all students in our programs are treated with dignity and respect, and feel heard. In my position, I work to provide accurate, specific, and intentional advising for each individual student, and work with students to encourage them to explore their potential.

I acknowledge the challenges and difficulties experienced in our current society, especially regarding disparities across a number of communities, and I support all students in their goals and aspirations to make change for the future. I intend to ensure all students feel reassured in their capabilities, and are motivated to continue on their path to success at UC Davis and beyond.
