Liaison to: Butler College 

I enjoy: Spending time with my husband and two young daughters.

A fun fact about me is: I interned with the children’s television host Fred Rogers in Pittsburgh when I was an undergraduate, and got to answer his viewer mail among other exciting tasks.

My first job after graduation: Spanish bilingual first-grade teacher in Paterson, NJ with Teach For America.

I'm energized by: Planning trips of all kinds including exploring offbeat destinations and factory tours.

The place I grew up is special because: The Bay Area has very friendly people. I love the weather and exploring San Francisco.
