What I like most about my role within the Center is…

I like the positive energy working in higher education, and playing a small role promoting the Center’s mission of literacy feels rewarding.

What I believe in

Leveling the playing field. Listening. Being humble. Drawing out everyone’s stories, because everyone has good ones.

Previous work highlights

I have spent most of my career writing and doing graphic design, and I love to bounce back and forth between big picture/creative ideas, and tiny details. My first job after college was reviewing TV shows and interviewing television personalities for a magazine that was later sold to TV Guide.

Favorite book

The Brothers K by David James Duncan

Fun fact

I’m a dual citizen: USA and Australia. 

I make birthday crowns out of felt.

I like to bake bread. Mostly sourdough.
