"It is so exciting to learn almost daily about the groundbreaking research taking place on this campus, as well as meeting the people who ensure the educational experience is rich and appropriate for the 21st century."

I am thrilled to be part of the HR team here at Purdue. This university is a gem, and I am honored to be part of its efforts to attract and retain a talented and diverse faculty. My husband and I are new -- to the Midwest, Greater Lafayette and to Purdue. We are originally from the San Francisco Bay area but have lived in the southland of Raleigh, N.C. for the past 20 years. One thing I have always known is how much I love universities and university towns, and Lafayette-West Lafayette is no exception. It is so exciting to learn almost daily about the groundbreaking research taking place on this campus, as well as meeting the people who ensure the educational experience is rich and appropriate for the 21st century. And on top of that, there are the wide open skies. So limitless and beautiful, like anything is possible.

I received my Master’s in History from North Carolina State University in 2005 and spent several years teaching survey level American History. Advising students and connecting them with resources that could help them in their education and career goals was nearly as rewarding as the classroom experience. Aiding newcomers in identifying resources and establishing networks in the community is my pleasure. And because I’m a newcomer myself, we will learn together!
