    Biology & Cognitive Science Double Major
    She/Her Pronouns
    I am a peer adviser because helping people has always been a side gig of mine. The university system is as complex as the Fibonacci Spirals, that’s where we as peer advisers come in. We want to assist you in any way that we can and act as a liaison between students, faculty and advisers and make you get the most out of your time here at our wonderful research university. Being in your shoes only a few years ago gives me an in-depth understanding of what its like to go through college and trying to smoothen out the kinks. With that being said, drop by with any questions, any time, and a peer adviser will be there to assist you.
