After every meeting with Michele, I always walk away feeling more confident and energized. Michele is so encouraging and truly helps to bring out my potential. To educate is to bring out powers and abilities that lie dormant and inactive, and Michele does just that by affirming my past success and by challenging me keep striving for greatness in life, education, and career. As an academic adviser, Michele is ready to equip students with the information they need to make good choices related to class schedules, majors, and degree planning. She goes through the “what if” scenarios and has helped me understand how to make the most of my college education at Iowa State. Iowa State is incredibly blessed to have Michele on staff! Thank you for being such an outstanding adviser, Michele! Keep being awesome!
