I received my B.S. in Chemistry from Mary Baldwin University and my Ph.D. in Toxicology from the University of Rochester. Originally from the East Coast, I sought out sunny California and became an industry scientist. A few years later, I changed careers and moved to Stanford to follow my passion for increasing diversity in STEM.

I am an Assistant Dean in the Office of Multicultural Affairs, School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences ( I specialize in increasing faculty, staff and student diversity and inclusion through programming and initiatives. I practice knowledge building, process improvement, and behavioral change to identify, recruit and cultivate the best academic talent.
