Quote: "Princeton truly is a diverse community and I get to experience that firsthand. I come into contact with students, faculty and staff all over campus, from Nassau Hall to the warehouse. I feel the excitement when I meet faculty doing great research. With the students working in the office, I get to watch them grow into phenomenal people. While doing all that, I get to explore my own interests. The best part is I've gotten to discover interests I didn't even know I had — being here has allowed that."

Other interests: Spending time with her husband and four daughters. Traveling. Researching her ancestry. Volunteering at the Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen at St. Mary's Cathedral in Trenton.
