My favorite thing about Northland is getting to really know my students. I think students at Northland are embraced by the faculty and they feel supported. Initially, I was drawn to my discipline by my interest in “little things” and the power of molecular biology. Aside from my teaching, I am reading about potential outbreaks of horrible, deadly diseases. I enjoy gardening, baking, and hiking.
