How long you’ve been with the department?
What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done?
I have been fortunate to have traveled to a lot of places in college, including Sicily. I hiked up Mt. Etna, an active volcano. I walked by the vents where lava shoots out from, and looked over the island!
If you could witness any historical event, which one would you want to see and why?
I would want to witness Alexander the Great conquer the "known world". I would want to understand why he felt so confident to take on the Persian Empire, and how he led his armies through decades on nonstop campaigning.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy reading, hanging out with friends, and exercising.
Where would you go on your dream vacation?
Anywhere! My next trip will most likely be to a continent I've never been to before, either Africa or South America.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in the last five years?
You can't take care of anything without taking care of yourself. Prioritize what matters most to you first!
