Why did you choose WMU? Teaching and research opportunities with various professors and colleagues.

What are your favorite foods? I used to be an executive chef and I still love to cook a variety of cuisine. I believe in the minimally processed approach to whole foods and grow my own food. My favorite foods are homemade sauces, soups, veggie-based purées, and stir-fry. 

How do you stay motivated? Coffee (I am new mom!) and nature walks with my dogs.

What is your dream job? I'd love to be a WMU professor!
