At GNSI, I will work with the team to plan and execute multiple events and activities that will bring  together scholars, researchers, and practitioners with policymakers to ensure that decision-makers can access and engage with the most current knowledge and solutions. I started the role in February 2023, so I expect things to continuously evolve.

I consider myself a jill of all trades. I have worked in a wide variety of fields including childcare, the service industry, medical education and even as a magicians assistant. In June 2022, I started at USF as the research administrator for the Dept. of Anthropology and now look forward to applying my skill sets to the work at GNSI.


Getting to Know Your GNSI Team

Flashback to 10 years old: What did you want to be when you grew up?
A filmmaker, paleontologist, mortician, spy and train-hopper, it changed based on my current book or movie obsession. 

What's the most "interesting" thing you've done that not many people know about?
Have I done a lot of interesting things-yes. Can I share them on public forum-not really.

Favorite musician, genre of music?
I listen to music based on my mood, so it can range from bluegrass to deathcore to medieval choral.

Where are you from originally? What was your first job?
Originally from Texas, but grew up on several military installations in Germany. First job was at Taco Bell in an AAFES food court.

Books you're currently reading?
Fight Like Hell: The Untold History of the American Labor Movement

Favorite sport, team, athlete or "thing" you could be President of the Fan Club?
Cryptids. If you want to know about Mothman or the Flatwoods Monster--I'm your girl.

Finish this sentence: On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me...
Looking like the swamp monster cleaning the house, chugging coffee and running after the kiddos.

When's your birthday?
November Scorpio
