Where do you call home?

I really do not call any place home because I've travelled so much in my life and have moved a lot growing up.

Why do you work in International Affairs?

I've been immersed in international cultures my whole life and have had the pleasure to travel, study, live, or work in over 30 countries. I value international diversity, especially learning more about different perspectives that increase my understanding of the world. Working in this office allows me to build meaningful relationships with people from all over the world and make a positive impact in their lives.

Where is your favorite place in the world, and why?

My favorite place in the world is White Sands National Park. White Sands is a beautiful and serene place that everyone must visit.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?
