  • My Philosophy: I believe that every student has their own path to success. To find it, sometimes it helps to just have someone to talk to. Whether it's with me, another advisor, your friends or family, don't be afraid to let others in along your educational path. Within the MEP, we hope to create a family environment, where you feel comfortable coming to us with your questions. Please do not hesitate to come in!
