Tell us about yourself...What are you currently studying at the SBA and what year are you in? Where are you from? Are you a transfer student? If so, where did you transfer from?

 I major in  Management & Leadership and I minor in Design Management. I'm currently a junior and plan to graduate in 2018. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. 

What made you want to be a peer advisor?

 Working with the SBA and being an orientation leader helped me realize that in order to successfully complete your education at PSU then you need to seek help from other students, mentors, and school resources such as the advising center. I want to be able to give back to my community and help direct students so they feel prepared and feel they have the necessary tools to succeed.

What's your favorite thing about studying and working at the SBA?

 My favorite thing about studying and working at the SBA is the faculty and the endless resources available here for us.

Why should students seek express advising? What should they expect? How should they prepare?

 Students can come to express advising with a question about the next term and whether a class fulfills a degree requirement. Students can expect quick sessions can answer most of their immediate questions. Come prepared with questions!

Where do you see yourself in five years?

 I see myself working in a role where I get to apply my knowledge and skills in a creative role for a global company.
