Mentoring Philosophy:

My mentoring is grounded in strong, trusting relationships and a responsiveness to students' interests and needs. While every case of mentoring is slightly different depending on the student, across all mentoring, I aim to develop strong relationships with students, so that our collaborative work is built on trust. Early on in mentoring, I work to understand students' needs, interests, and life experiences, so that I can create a space where they will thrive and achieve the goals that they set out to achieve. In this project, the student can expect to meet with me a few times per week to check in about the project. They can also expect to work alongside me in an apprenticeship model, where they learn skills such as data collection, management, and analysis. By the end of the project, I hope for us to be writing collaboratively on the outcomes of this research.
