I had the opportunity to mentor an undergrad through her transition from part-time to a certified full-time student. There were a lot of moving parts to this transition including relocating the Tri-Cities and changing her income source. She is a very bright and talented individual, but it was clearly a stressful time for her. Helping her organize her thoughts and find clarity was all she needed, and I believe set her up for success. I am thrilled to have been a small part of it. – Paul Carlisle
