Mentee and Mentor of the Month

 

Michael Dries: Psychology Major, Class of 2013

Dr. Marti Leonard: Licensed Psychologist  

We would like to introduce Marti Leonhard and Michael Dries who met at one of the many events that the Career Development Office offers.
 
Marti said the Mentor/Mentee program attracted her interest as an enjoyable way to give back to the Xavier community. She is proud to be the third of four generations, and first woman, to graduate from Xavier. College is such an exciting time in the lives of students, and she find their enthusiasm heart-warming.
 
Michael said he chose to join the mentoring program to learn more about the field of education and to seek assistance with resume and interview preparation. As a result, he was paired with Dr. Leonhard because of her experience as a psychologist; his interest in moving to Los Angeles was also helpful because Dr. Leonhard has spent time in that part of the country. He is excited to report that he traveled to Chicago to interview for a position in PLACE Corps, a post-graduate teaching certification program located in Los Angeles! He owes gratitude to Dr. Leonhard for her assistance in preparing his application and resume.
