I enjoy mentoring and try to make myself as available as possible to current students. St. Thomas has provided me with a great network and opened so many doors for me, professionally.

Mentoring is my small way to give back to the community that means so much to me.

I’ve benefited from great mentors throughout my career. I signed up to be a mentor at St. Thomas because I wanted to give back. I feel like I learn just as much from my mentees as they learn from me. I am a big believer in lifelong learning and development.

If both parties are learning, it's a win-win.

I enjoy helping women negotiate their salaries. I was touched when a previous intern reached out to tell me that she negotiated her first salary. She said before our meeting, she wouldn't have had the confidence to do so.

These interactions has helped me become a better mentor, coach and supervisor.

I mentor students and young adults who are interested in what I can share from my past experiences. I enjoy mentoring because I always learn and grow from the experience. 

I love the connections and relationships I've developed through mentoring -- some which I know will last a lifetime.
