Fun Facts

Last book you read?

Bad Blood by John Carreyrou

Best advice you ever received?

Pick and choose your battles.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

A teacher and a lawyer.

Favorite Quote?

My eldest son once called me, “Highly, intelligently, strange.” He was referring to how “geeky” I am and I love it.

One thing about your school that you are most proud of?

This may sound cliche, but I’m proud to be a part of the CLS department. I’ve waited a long time to transition to academia and I couldn’t feel prouder to work in this department with my amazing colleagues.

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

I really enjoy making connections with my students and sharing my passion for medical laboratory science.

A piece of advice for students in your school?

Study, review or rewrite your lecture notes every day. I received this advice from my high school chemistry teacher. It took me until my second semester sophomore year in college to see the wisdom in this advice.
