What I like best about working for CMNS:

My favorite part of work is interacting with our talented, diverse, and impressive student body and celebrating their successes. Even after two decades, I am always learning something new from them!

In my spare time, I enjoy:

Cuddling with my cats (Anya Groot and Rispy Pearce), visiting zoos across the country, and watching Marvel tv shows and movies with my husband.
