Advice to students: Seek out mentors. Find people whose approach to life and work you trust and respect, and ask them all your questions. Most people are very willing to share about their experiences if you ask! By seeking out wisdom held by those you trust, you can learn more about yourself and what you value most.
If you could be any major in your cluster, what would it be? Why?: I think a major in community health would be interesting! With my background in sociology, I would especially be interested in thinking about the delivery of information to diverse communities with cultural competency in mind.
Biography: I grew up in Pasadena, California, and loved growing up around the National Parks and scenery of the western United States. After college, I lived in Washington D.C. for about 10 years and have lived in Indiana since 2010. My favorite things are spending time with my family (I'm married, with two daughters), having a good laugh, hiking/spending time outside, and traveling. Our greatest family adventure to date was living and working in Ireland for six months!
