What is something that most people do not know about you?
I think of myself as an introvert in settings where I don't know people.
Tell us about an interesting hobby.
I love to cook and bake. It is my creative outlet.
If you could learn any language, what would it be and why?
I will try to learn Chinese as I think I may be going to China over the next year or so to teach.
What do you think is the key to academic success?
Hard work and organization.
Provide a useful interview tip.
Wear something you feel good in so you are as relaxed as possible. Interviewing is a stressful environment and making yourself feel comfortable will allow you to interview more effectively.
What pets do you have?
I have one dog who is mostly chocolate lab and part border collie. He is 6 months old and full of energy. His name is Kona, as in Kona Coffee.
What gives current graduates an ‘edge’ in today’s job market?
Internships and real world experience definitely help to provide an "edge" but also being willing to take on extra work, showing up on time or early, completing tasks in a timely manner and challenging your own abilities.
