Graduate Advising
14 E. Jackson Blvd.
Room 1814
Chicago, IL 60604

Where did you go to school?
University of San Diego for undergrad and DePaul for graduate school.

What were your majors/minors in undergrad?
Psychology Major, Gender Studies Minor.  Counseling for graduate school.

Favorite class in college?
That’s a toss-up. Gender and Religion, Sociology of Sexual Orientation, or Peer Counseling

If you weren’t an academic advisor, what would you be doing?
Owning/operating an organic farm where I’ll raise bees (or hire a gal to raise bees) and sell my delicious, yet over-priced, honey and other organic preserves to lovely folks I’ll know by name. Also, maybe one day I’ll be a high school counselor.

Three things you would take with you on a deserted island? 
All my farming skills I’ll have learned on my organic farm (but that’s intangible and should not count as one of my three items). An internet connection, a solar-powered smartphone and lots of OFF! (to keep the ravenous mosquitoes away).
