What do you like about your job?
I like the opportunity to think hard about things. Designing a study, planning a course, putting together a lecture, writing…all those things really force hard, careful thinking and it feels good. I also love seeing students mature and develop. It’s a great job.
What do you do for fun?
I love to spend time with my family…my husband, my children, my grandchildren. Cooking great meals is always part of that fun for me…and, I think, for them. I also enjoy gardening, travelling, reading, art, music, and spending time with good friends.
Where did you go on your last vacation?
My husband and I went to Paris, rented a small apartment and were joined by our daughter and two grandsons. It was wonderful seeing Paris again through their eyes!
