Biography

Hometown

Killeen, TX—sort of. I was an Army brat and spent the most time in Killeen, and I’ve been in Indiana since 2003.

Advice for Boilermakers

Take an interesting class not in your major, try out a new student organization, and/or participate in a study abroad program. You have more flexibility and time now than you think. And remember to get some sleep.

Fun Facts

  • I identify as Korean-American, and I am bilingual. I’m also a registered member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians.
  • I love food—eating it, making it, and learning about it. You can often find me at a farmer’s market, and I’ve been known to travel with a cooler so I can bring back yummy ingredients.
  • I enjoy reading, music, hiking, travel, bargain hunting, and locating obscure information that a friend or family member needs.
  • If you drop by my office, you can help yourself to some chocolate and look at artwork by my daughter.
