How did Earlham help prepare you for your current career?
“Earlham excels at teaching students analyzing and writing skills, and the College gave me a well-rounded liberal arts education that allowed me to easily transition from a natural history museum-based career to one in library automation.”
Why do you volunteer for the college?
“I am a fifth-generation Earlhamite (and my daughter is a sixth). Earlham has instilled in my family a desire to work for the good of society, and I want to help the College educate future generations of students with the same ideals. I also want to help biology students train for a career in the natural sciences (especially ornithology).”
Favorite Earlham memory?
“After taking the Ornithology class with Jim Cope during he spring of my sophomore year, I spent two years working in the Joseph Moore Museum, including a year as the student Curator of Ornithology.”
