My friends would describe me as outgoing, funny, smart, and witty, someone who is equally comfortable in running shoes and sweatshirts as I am in heels and dresses. I'm shy at first, but tend to warm up quickly to people who make me laugh.
After grad school at IU (go Hoosiers!), and college in Ohio, I left snowy winters and the Midwest and moved to North Carolina to take a job in higher ed, and recently moved back to the area for a position at MSU. I like running, cooking for my friends, traveling, and watching marathons of bad TV while baking. My family is really important to me, and though they live in Illinois and Indiana, I talk to my sister almost daily. I hate bad grammar and bad spelling. I read the New York Times almost daily, and love learning-I want to go back to school sometime soon. My favorite thing to do is sit on a porch, drinking wine, while laughing with friends.
