Advisor Advice: Francine Coker

Francine Coker from University of Miami shares Advisor Advice for Fall 2023.

Francine’s Advice for practicing boundaries for work-life balance:
I set boundaries for work-life balance by eating lunch every day, no matter how busy my schedule is, because nourishment is essential. In addition, I take brief breaks once a month to practice self-care. My guilty pleasure is traveling with loved ones or close pals.

Francine’s one piece of Advice for her students:
One piece of advise I would provide to my students is to be open to learning and growing as a programming board chair or director, as they will be leading others in the near future. Sometimes students forget that the skills they develop in these roles are transferable to any job market.
