When did you start working at Tang?
What do you find most interesting about working in college health?
Young adults are at a critical juncture in development. In college, they’re forming habits that will affect well-being, learning, and personal/career fulfillment over a lifetime. I’m so impressed by how well our students learn to manage their own lives, studies, and health with little or no parental oversight. It’s just so interesting to listen to their stories and I’m so glad I can be part of the health care team that helps with their needs and watches them grow and succeed.
What's your "Tang Tip" for students?
My Tang Tip for students is to get the most benefits out of SHIP insurance, use the student health services, and get immunized for routine and travel immunizations. You will provide a safer school environment for yourself and others.
What are your hobbies/what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, eating, hiking, and gardening.
What's your favorite quote?
