I am originally from a small town in Virginia but took the climate challenge and came to Michigan as an undergraduate (consequently loved it here and decided to stay — graduate school, family, and career…). I have never lost the fascination for the amazing opportunities for learning and growth and the atmosphere that they create on this campus. Plus – who could deny the charm of Ann Arbor with a million things to do and a bunch of great restaurants (BTW, my fave right now is Knights with Tio’s as a close second.) I enjoy nature and taking nature walks in places like the Arb. I also like children’s literature and dabble in writing children’s books and poetry. Stop by my office anytime and check out my picks for the week.
