Assistant Director of Advising
Academic advising is a combination of informational and relational components. I believe we need both, but the most important aspect is building a positive relationship with each student through empathetic listening and compassion. This approach builds camaraderie and trust so that I am able to encourage, yet provide firm direction, whenever necessary. I want the student to feel comfortable enough to be open and honest about his or her goals and/or problems. The information component of academic advising requires that I have a solid knowledge about Jacksonville University and its policies, procedures, and resources, as well, to be able to assist students in these areas.
