What's the first career you dreamed of having as a child?
My idol was Nancy Kerrigan, and I dreamt of becoming a famous ice skater! My lack of coordination said otherwise...
What are your favorite activities when you are not working?
I like being active - kickball, bike riding, hiking, etc. I am also an avid football fan (who dat!)
What is your favorite thing about SoPA?
My favorite thing about SoPA is that the school is designed with non-traditional students in mind, and that accommodating/working with students is a top priority for staff and faculty alike.
