Q&A Session

Three words that describe me

Enthusiastic, energetic, success driven

Career Defining Moment

I moved with my husband to Cleveland, OH as a trailing spouse and never thought I would find a job – but that is where I went from industry to academia and had a great seven-year career working with people I would never have gotten to know in industry.

Something unique about me

My husband and I are ballroom dance enthusiasts. I’m a knitter – Florida weather can be a little warm for that so out-of-state friends and family have a lot of sweaters!
