What I like best about working for CMNS:

The people! We have a unique group of staff and faculty throughout the college who are dedicated to making the student experience in CMNS and at UMD the best it can be for our students. We are a big team, and work together to help each other through the myriad of tasks and responsibilities we have. Everyone's input is valued and encouraged, and we all learn from one another to provide top notch services to our students and to each other. We're all Science Terps, and the people are the most valuable part of the college to me.

In my spare time, I enjoy:

Hiking, bird watching, visiting national parks and historical sites, spending time with my large extended family (who are mostly within an hour of the DC area)!
