This program promotes growth opportunities for our new generation of professionals in the best way possible. I love getting the chance to provide one-on-one mentoring, ensuring each student receives first-hand knowledge of resources available to them to pursue their career. In addition, the ability to build new connections and relationships helps grow the career of both the mentor and the mentee. I feel that beyond your education, personal and professional relationships are your greatest asset to a successful career. I look forward to mentoring students, providing them with as much insight and assistance as I can, and also learning from them in the process. - Elizabeth Allard
