Professor Carlie Visser was extremely helpful and encouraging during my time in her class. She offered me guidance and understanding throughout my struggles. She did not question why I needed help, nor degrade or belittle me. She empowered me to continue to strive for excellence and that is exactly the kind of support that mental health requires. A little kindness goes an exceptionally long way.

When students ask for help I do my best to provide it. As a grad student and instructor I get that we are all just out here doing our best. I work  to create a safe and supportive atmosphere for my students and remember that they have lives and commitments outside of my class. I try to hold space for the messiness of life and remember that kindness and compassion go a long way.
