When I'm not here on our gorgeous campus, I love to hike and, prior to COVID, I was part of a master's advanced sweep rowing team a few mornings a week in an 8-person shell with the Los Gatos Rowing Club. I'm also volunteering with the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter taking dogs that are up for adoption out for walks and cuddles.
