"Everyday at STA profound things are happening with students and faculty, both large and small. Whether it be a student facing a particular challenge and working through it, a faculty member going out of their way to support or challenge a student and the relationship that builds or the personal and team accomplishments of students and faculty, there is life and energy and joy to be found everyday and I love that!"
Her bucket list includes giving a TED Talk and spending one week alone at the family cabin. She loves planning parties and celebrations for others, especially when they are a surprise, and she loves the Avengers movies!
