    I grew up in Sunnyvale, CA. My family goes back many generations from the San Francisco Peninsula. I came to Santa Clara University and the Leavey School of Business in July, 2005. I supported the Marketing Department until 2008 when I joined Undergraduate Business Programs. Grateful for the educational benefits here at SCU, I am pursuing a B.A. in Religious Studies and truly enjoying the journey. Homework does not leave much time for books or movies, but I do enjoy an occasional spa day or a trip to my favorite winery in the Hollister hills. 
    This year my husband and I are trying new restaurants in Santana Row and downtown San Jose. We enjoy the rare occasion when both our son and daughter can join us. We have a close knit extended family, all of whom live locally. I love sightseeing, taking lots of photos and scrapbooking. Hawaii remains my favorite vacation destination but my bucket list includes Europe and the east coast. 
    My greatest simple pleasure is finding nature in the everyday…a walk across this beautiful campus or in my own backyard.  When I have more free time, I’d like to read for pleasure and get back into swimming. I plan to volunteer at the hospital where I worked for 20 years and would love to socialize with cats and rabbits at the Humane Society. 
    This quote has been particularly inspiring to me…“With swift pace, light step, unswerving feet may you go forward, securely, joyfully, and swiftly on the path of happiness.” – St. Clare of Assisi
