More than 100 staff members work in the Division of the Humanities. We’ll introduce you to our staff in this continuing series.
What do you like most about your job?
There is so much to like about my job, but what I love most is the community in which I engage with through my role here. There is an abundance of vitality and excitement being on a university campus, and my job has allowed me to jump right into all the action. Every day is dynamic and filled with learning and collaborating with staff, faculty, and students. Everyone has been incredibly supportive, encouraging, and kind, and I love that I get to work with many members across the division and university.
What was the last good book you read?
I recently finished reading Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat by Marion Nestle. Clean eating is important to me and my family, so I try to learn as much as I can about the ingredients in our food as well as the food industry. I also finally read Pachinko by Min Jin Lee, a novel that has been on my list for a while. The book was absolutely engrossing and beautifully written.
You might work with me if …
… You need to cross-list a course with Comparative Literature, ask about PhD student requirements, or co-sponsor an event.
If you had an extra hour every day, what would you do with it?
I compost but have always given away the finished compost because I had neither the extra time nor access to a yard or garden. I recently moved from a high-rise apartment to a home with some yard space, so I would love to plant/garden with my toddler using our very own compost!
