A typical day:
One day at work is never the same as the one before, which I love. I am most likely running around campus to work with various classes or meet with professors, or I am on the lower level of Lavery Library — in my office, within the shelves of the Curriculum Center, or teaching in L-100.
What are you most proud of in your career?
- Teaching internationally.
- Having students tell me that I helped them and taught them something of value.
At meetings I am always...
...involved, vocal, and reminding myself to listen more.
Others would say that I…
...am energetic, passionate, and have big red hair.
When you aren't at work, what are you likely doing?
Reading with a coffee in a cafe, snacking, or going on an adventure (big or small).
