On weekends you can often find me: curled up with a book, writing, drawing, or wandering outside with my camera.
I can't imagine life without: loved ones, books, yoga, and creativity.
TV shows I would rush home to watch are: Big Bang Theory and Downton Abbey.
The film that comes to mind as my favorite is: Avatar or The Princess Bride.
On vacation you can find me in: somewhere warm (and quiet!).
The best part of being an advisor is: connecting with students, listening to their stories, working together to create a degree that reflects their interests and goals
My favorite season in the northeast is: spring and fall. I can't pick a favorite!
If I had to survive on just one food, it would be: chocolate!
My greatest influence is: my mother. She is the most genuinely caring, giving person I know.
My favorite books are: The Forgotten Garden (Kate Morton), Arcadia (Tom Stoppard), Why I Wake Early & American Primitive (Mary Oliver).
My favorite quote is: "Comparing what we're looking for misses the point. It's wanting to know that makes us matter. Otherwise we're going out the way we came in." (Tom Stoppard, Arcadia)
