As an artist, musician, and scientist, I strongly believe in the creative process, diversity in collaboration, and hands-on experiential learning. Much of my volunteer and university-related service work is aimed at increasing diversity and intellectual engagement in communities and self-efficacy in individuals. I thoroughly enjoy working with and mentoring first-generation college students as I, too, am a first-get student that navigated a stark transition from the farm to a large university. While my service projects vary from science communication to the unique challenges women face in academia, the foundation of all these endeavors is built on a culture of understanding, equity, and inclusion.
