Senior Advisor, Department of Chemistry
I enjoy outdoor activities including rock climbing, paddleboarding, kayaking and biking. On the weekends I love to explore new restaurants, coffee shops, and local boutiques. I have small obsessions with HGTV, Trader Joe's, my cat, and any type of breakfast food.

I believe that education opens the door to self-discovery. Not only through the interesting, challenging, and diverse courses taken, but also through the experiential components of higher education. What I love about the undergraduate experience is that there is no one-size-fits-all. Students are empowered to experience all they want; to try and to try again, until they discover more about their passions, values, and interests. My goal is to provide students with the knowledge, confidence, and resources to make their dreams a reality.
"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good." -Roald Dahl
