After 30 years in UCI BioSci administration, I think BioSci is in my DNA. I love working in this amazing school and I really can’t imagine my life without it – without its people, its beautiful environment, its challenges and discoveries. Over the decades, I have experienced tremendous personal and professional growth, even receiving the UCI “Excellence in Leadership Award” in 2014. Finally, I’m proud to be part of our school’s unique and vibrant culture of respect, diversity, care and collaboration. For me, that is the essence of why #IamUCIBioSci.
