Describe your job in four words

​Connecting people to science!

Finish this sentence: I love science because …

​There is always something new to learn and discover.

What songs have you completely memorized?

I’m horrible at remembering lyrics! I get corrected all the time.

What is your favorite exhibit at the Fleet and why?

​MythBusters! It is so much fun to test out all the challenges. I’m pretty much a master at pulling a table cloth from underneath a set dinner table!

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

​Travel alone. Even if it’s just a weekend getaway. There is nothing like stepping out of your comfort zone and discovering a new place all on your own.
