Other Interests (or, why I might not be responding to your email)
Dogs They are the best study break. I am the proud parent of a distinguished Australian Shepherd/Kelpie mix, Piper, and a young, very energetic German Shepherd mix, Sadie. They love hiking about as much as they love not looking at cameras.
Hiking I'm very thankful to be completing grad school so close to great hiking locations. For the first five years, I was near the Shenandoah Valley. For my final year, it's right next to the Rockies. If it's not raining and above 40 degrees, that's probably where you'll find me Saturday mornings.
Soccer If it is raining or under 40 degrees, you'll find me at home Saturday mornings watching the Premier League. I love cheering on my team of choice, Manchester United. Their recent form makes the publication process seem much less frustrating by comparison.
