What you might not know about me is:
When I’m not working, you will most likely find me at a local train station with my son, who is in the midst of a train craze. It’s always a big day when we get a bell ring or horn beep!

What I love most about my job:                                         
I love working with students starting in their first year and watching them find majors and career paths they’re passionate about over the years. I especially love when they come back to fill me in on success stories when they get the internship or job that we’ve talked so much about and prepared for.

My favorite interview question to ask:
I love to incorporate this question into mock interviews with students: “What is the theme song to your life?”
