Advising Philosophy Statement

In terms of advising philosophy, I aim to meet students where they are and provide resources and support to help them reach their next step. As an academic advisor, I try to take a holistic view of my students, taking into account all of their goals, aspirations, needs, and responsibilities. As a first-generation student myself, I understand that college can be overwhelming! I hope to empower my students to face their challenges, reach their goals, and become connected to the UNLV community.
