What mentoring means to me:

I think of mentoring as a form of demystification. People and issues in academia can be intimidating when one is a graduate student and a mentor is the person who makes things more palatable, people more personable and approachable, and the institution more navigable.

Topics I am willing to discuss with students:

Minority Experiences

  • Being a woman and related discrimination.
  • Class and/or socioeconomic status and related discrimination.
  • Physical health and/or abilities and related discrimination.
  • Mental health and/or abilities and related discrimination.
  • Racial, ethnic, cultural and/or religious minority status and related discrimination.
  • Sexual and/or gender minority status and related discrimination.

Academic Culture

  • Dealing with politics and conflict with faculty or peers.
