Please e-mail Counseling Assistant Sonya Brooks to set up a meeting with me.  We might also be able to address your concern or inquiry via e-mail.  

I'm sorry that I am usually unavailable to answer phone calls, but I make every effort to return phone messages within 48 hours as long as I am not off campus.  Most often I return e-mails faster than phone messages.


Please see me in person at least 3 weeks in advance with all the details of your request.  I may ask you to complete a "Senior Profile for Letters of Rec" so that you can provide me with more information about yourself.  Remember that CSUs and UCs do not require letters of rec (nor do they accept them).

Focused learners
Analytical thinkers 
Responsible and respectful citizens
Mindful collaborators
Effective communicators  
Resourceful users of technology
