From the moment I heard that at Earlham we make decisions by consensus, I fell in love with Earlham. I enjoy working with colleagues to accomplish goals at the department. Meeting many motivated, hardworking, positive-thinking students when I came over for campus interview was another reason I chose Earlham. I am very excited to accomplish lots and lots of research and teaching goals with our amazing students, faculty and staff crew.

Amazingly determined, diligent and smart. Also, they are great at teamwork.
