Education is a journey that we all begin and finish at different points in our lives. I support students from all walks of life as they map out the path to their dream career. As I am often the first point of contact for many prospective students, I am excited to introduce students to the Portobello Institute experience. I love learning about students’ ideas, goals, and passions, and this job allows me to do so.
