A fun fact about me: I originally went to college to become a history teacher, but discovered I liked talking about the future more than the past – a discovery which led me to my career as a career adviser!

My favorite part of my job is: Connecting with former students on LinkedIn to follow the many intriguing career paths they take.

If I weren’t doing this job I’d be: Studying a bunch of different languages so I could live – and work – anywhere in the world!

My day is made better when: I discover a previously-unexplored pathway within campus.

I could give a 40-minute presentation with absolutely no preparation on: How to make super-fluffy matzah balls.
