I became a counselor because I really enjoy learning about people and their lives. I really enjoy working with college students because it is such an important time in life. College is a great time to learn about people (living with a roommate can be a great way to do this) and define plans/expectations for the future. Being around people from different cultures and being exposed to so many new concepts and interesting professors can be really helpful in figuring out where we fit in this complicated world. When I am not here at the Wellness Center meeting with students I spend time enjoying the outdoors: running, hiking, skiing and spending time with my family and friends.
