*Though the committee she worked for dealt with numbers and the tax code, one colleague there referred to her fondly as the "committee shrink" because she thought it was important that we appreciate each other's quirks and differences better by understanding different temperaments and preferences. In fact, she convinced most of her coworkers from every job she had since she finished graduate school to take a personality instrument and allow her to give an overview of some of the theories and applications after they were shown their results!
Hobbies: She absolutely enjoys reading, learning, brainstorming with cool people, drawing, painting, playing instruments, composing music, and singing.
