I completed my PhD in Sustainability at Arizona State University in August 2013. I was then recruited to teach sustainability to future teachers in ASU's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. I am teaching future teachers what sustainability is and how to incorporate it into their future classrooms.
Although I spend a lot of my time teaching and with my students, I love to get outdoors and explore the world. I love to do yoga, camp, hike, backpack, travel, ski, cook, play tennis, play softball, dance, spend time with my foster dog, chill with my friends with a drink, and play in the sun. Traveling is probably my number one joy in life. I start feeling claustrophobic if I am in a place for too long.
I am constantly getting out and exploring. For example, in the last two years I have been to Austin, Portland, Salt Lake City, Vegas, Sedona, Flagstaff, Denver, Tucson, D.C., San Francisco, Orange County, Rhode Island, France, Italy, Switzerland, Durango, San Antonio, Bangkok, and Patagonia (Chile and Argentina).
My family is VERY important from me. I do not come from a very large family, but I value all of my relatives deeply. I am French-American, and my culture is a big part of who I am. Two summers ago my 80 year old grandma and I did a last minute road trip to Tuscany. It was such an eye opening experience and allowed me to connect with my grandma on a level we had never done before. However, this was our second trip together. A few years ago we went to Egypt together.
