What do you like to do with out-of-towners? I love having friends visit from other cities, and we often just walk around the old port or visit tasting rooms.
Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Sitting on the rocks overlooking the islands! Or laying on them, if I've had a particularly tiring run.
Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Hilltop coffee! When I get tired of my home office, I walk to Hilltop and I always either run in to friends, or meet new ones.
I lead and create social breaks designed to reduce stress and connect people to their community.
I collaborate with students, staff, faculty, and the community to make and keep USM environmentally sustainable
