What do you enjoy most about working with Tulane undergrads?
I love working with Tulane students because they’re high achievers. They care a lot about making the most of their time at Tulane. Their motivation is contagious and an inspiration to me.

What is your favorite inspirational quote?
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou

What is your favorite spot on campus?
My favorite spot on campus is the Mardi Gras Tree! It’s a unique part of Tulane’s culture and what makes this campus special.

What do you love about New Orleans?
My favorite thing to do in New Orleans is to introduce my friends and family to the city. Taking a ride on the streetcar, strolling through Jackson Square, and eating at Juan’s Flying Burrito are usually on the top of our to-do list.

What do you enjoy most about working with Tulane undergrads?

Students come to Tulane with such varied and exceptional experiences, and they each bring something so unique to campus. I learn something new every time I meet with a student! 

What is your favorite spot on campus?

Pocket park is great when the weather is nice. I enjoy bringing my lunch out there and taking some time to relax outside.

What is your favorite New Orleans festival?

French Quarter Fest! What could be better than spending the weekend listening to (free) live music by the river, and sampling food from some of the best restaurants in NOLA? Plus, the weather in April is perfect!

Degrees: Bachelor of Science in Public Health and Master of Public Health in Community Health Sciences from Tulane

What do you enjoy most about working with Tulane undergrads?
It's never boring!  Talking with one Tulane student is never the same as talking with another; my students are clever and unique, and I think it's interesting to see how the study body changes from year to year.

What is your favorite spot on campus?
I love Gibson Circle, especially in the spring when the azaleas are blooming.

What is your favorite New Orleans restaurant?
Casamento’s!  I had my first raw oysters there the weekend I visited Tulane as a high school senior, and they are just as good now as they were back then.

Degrees: Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology, Bachelor of Arts in Spanish, Master of Social Work

What do you enjoy most about working with Tulane undergrads?
They keep me young! All joking aside, I love the enthusiasm students have for their interests and the dedication they bring to improving the lives of others.  As a native New Orleanean, I feel a great appreciation for the renewal efforts Tulane students have made in this city post-Katrina.

What is your favorite inspirational quote?
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is your favorite spot on campus?
Newcomb Quad, I love to grab quiet time under the Oak trees.

What is your favorite spot in New Orleans?
City Park, I have great childhood memories of Storyland and now my husband and I bring our daughter, Adelaide, there all the time.  We regularly visit Stanley Ray playground, the Carousel Gardens, Popp Fountain, NOMA, and the Sculpture Garden.  My favorite sculpture is the one by Claes Oldenburg- Safety Pin.  It reminds me of our time in San Francisco; the same sculpture is housed in the de Young Museum’s gardens in Golden Gate Park.
