IUBSC Motivations: I want to serve on the IUBSC to meet folks from across campus. I want to work together to build a vibrant, inclusive staff community. As we put the fraught weariness of the pandemic in the rearview mirror, my hope is to explore new ways to engage our talented staff. I would like to develop opportunities to heal as we move forward together to what is next for our university. I want to bring my passion for networking, collaboration, and programming to build a sustainable community for all of us.
