Interest and Desire to Mentor

I am interested in serving as a mentor because of the benefits I have received from mentors throughout my professional career. The mentors have provided their expertise and guidance without compensation. I now have the opportunity to give back by assisting a mentee in his/her personal and professional development. I also continue to learn and be informed with a mentoring partnership. I see this relationship as being mutually beneficial to the mentor and the mentee.

Values and Approaches to Mentoring

I approach mentoring based on my core beliefs of mutual respect for all individuals.  My professional and personal expertise is given freely to assist a mentee in their professional and personal development. My goal is to empower a mentee to succeed to their fullest capacity. My reward is assisting in the mentee’s growth and development. My hope is that the individual’s personal and professional outcomes exceed his/her expectations.
