I grew up in Los Angeles, but never surfed.
Class with Jo Ann Buysse! She is a great professor and challenged us to think big, especially regarding the role of women in the sports world. She is an inspiration.
I learn a new sport...squash, yoga, basketball...I am trying to find ways to enjoy sport outside of the elite level. It will always be a part of my life. I'm usually studying for class if I have spare time. Business school is a grind!
The chance to change the world, whatever that may be. We can all make a difference. I love envisioning ways business can help make our lives better in some way. I guess I'm an entrepreneur at heart!
River Town by Peter Hessler. It is a Peace Corps memoir that at its heart is a wonderful account of a teacher and his students.
A librarian. I made Dewey decimal labels and check out cards for all of my books and issued library cards to my stuffed animals.
I use the research and evaluation skills that I learned every day at work. I often return to Stuart Yeh’s work in research design, Michael Rodriguez’s measurement instruction, and all of my statistics courses. My experience in CEHD has had an enormous impact on my career.
