School of Nursing
As a first generation college graduate and non-traditional student, I understand how difficult it can be to navigate academic settings especially while balancing career and family life. Through mentoring I hope to provide guidance and insight to others who may have a limited understanding of the path towards a higher degree as this knowledge and experience isn't necessarily available to first generation students.
Suzanne adds: I have personal experience with issues related to discrimination against women and socioeconomic related discrimination. As a nurse I have encountered all of the other areas at some point in my career.
