The real meaning of a college degree lies in examining the transformative aspects of the experience. Higher education should be undertaken with thoughtfulness and purpose; helping students to engage a meaningful education is a privilege that I approach with both excitement and humility.

The most unusual thing in my office is a rubber chicken signed by some former students.

You may not know this about me, but I was an archaeology professor before discovering academic advising.

Something I often remind myself:  Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

I’m always reading something, and I particularly enjoy Alexander McCall Smith, Kurt Vonnegut, C. S. Forester, E. M. Forster, and John Hodgman. I love the mundane and the absurd.

A transformative moment in my college career was when I took an anthropology course about the effects of modernization on indigenous cultures.
