Home Country: USA

Favorite book/author and why: Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs. I enjoy memoirs that capture narratives from people whose lives and upbringings deviated from social norms. It’s a reminder to think “bigger than your bubble.”

Favorite thing to do when not at TC: Be outside with my children!

Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important to you? Diversity, equity, and inclusion is particularly important to me in this academic setting because if we as an institution can establish a diverse, equitable, and inclusive atmosphere for our students and constituents, we can then lay the groundwork for this to be carried on in the work they do out in the world. 

How have you helped advance diversity, equity, and inclusion at Taubman College? In planning several college events throughout the year, I get to have a direct impact on the student experience. I am working to make events a more inclusive experience for all attendees, which has been both challenging and rewarding, and has required a humble dedication to continued learning and growth.
