What do you like most about your job?

My job gives me the chance to work with many people from different backgrounds. As a people person, I really appreciate that. I feel lucky to be surrounded by great, smart faculty, staff, and students. I also love the event planning part of my job, as I like to get creative, and I feel very satisfied when I see people enjoying the events and everything going well.

What was the last good book you read?

The last good book I read was Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr. Joe Dispenza. It is an amazing book that helps you create the life you choose by connecting science and spirituality. Dispenza is like a life coach who walks you through a step-by-step process to change what you don't like about yourself or your life.

What knowledge, skills, beliefs, or values do you currently possess that allow you to manage complex situations?

To manage any complex situation, I try to divide it into smaller pieces. I work on the parts I can control and try to accept what I cannot.
