PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

Hands down, obtaining my doctoral degree. To thrive in the realm of scientific research, I had to become comfortable with the uncomfortable and always have faith in my ability to work and solve the problem. Plus, being a scientist is rad.

SURPRISING FACT:

I’m “shy-loud,” which is a fun way of saying I’m an introvert who loves to throw big group exercise parties.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

I hope I am remembered for making people feel happy and valued.

PERSONAL MOTTO:

“What would Ted Lasso do?”

ADVICE TO OTHERS:

Choose to believe in yourself enough to jump. Being courageous requires vulnerability, so I knew that when I chose to lead a courageous life, I had to be comfortable with the discomfort that comes with vulnerability. Standing on the sidelines and criticizing other players, especially when you aren’t brave enough to try out for the team or have never played the game, isn’t courageous. It’s easy. Choose to be brave, put on your blinders, and don’t listen to those who are sitting in the stands.
