When she isn’t creating lectures, mentoring undergraduate research students, or cheering at Oxy athletic events, you can probably find her weeding and planting flowers, exploring new restaurants, relieving stress by running at the Rose Bowl, or reminiscing about college days with fellow Oxy alums.  She attempts to practice what she preaches and is never afraid to laugh out loud!
