I admire intellectual agility and love applying new ways of thinking to common goals. When I was hired, I felt like I won the career lottery! I am excited about the WWU Environmental Studies Department, serving the students, faculty, staff, and global community. I love the vision of my new Chair Dr. Rebekah Paci-Green and I am very enthusiastic to push forward the university's goals of diversity, sustainability and equity in the years to come. I believe when we work together, anything is possible.
