Passions: Maintaining physical and mental wellbeing! Spending as much time with family and friends as possible...preferably outdoors!
Why University of Nevada Reno? I feel so fortunate to have a job where I yearn to go to work! I am able to teach the best and the brightest, work alongside incredibly motivated, talented faculty members and provide care to an underserved population. These things bring me such joy! The amazing outdoor opportunities in the Reno-Tahoe area are superlative, making my time away from work ultimately enjoyable.
