I am passionate about career development/exploration because of the opportunity I can bring to students to learn about themselves; to look more deeply inside to learn about the core of who they are and then begin exploring all of the career options/pathways that are available with a more informed perspective.

"What do you want to be when you grow up?" It's a question we are asked early and often in our lives, but selecting a career path is a challenging decision that's connected to self-awareness and development. What I love about career counseling is the opportunity to help students think about their goals and dreams - and imagine how a career path can align with the life they envision.
