When not at Northeastern, she enjoys her family and exploring new ideas and putting new twists to old ones.

Of her current role: "Through assessment and program review, I have learned much about the many good people at NEIU teaching and serving our students; the disciplinary nuances that are so important to understand as we work together; and the joys experienced in coming together for a common purpose. So many excellent programs, so many excellent efforts, I hope that in our work together we can build on these. I look forward to seeing you soon!"
