Role in CCPA:

I provide career counseling/advising to current students and alumni. This means I help them answer the “What should I do with my life?” question, demystify the job search/grad school application process, help them identify and pursue opportunities relevant to their interests, skills, and values, etc. Ultimately, I help students effectively connect their education to their career of choice.
