Why did you select your profession?

Being a professor gave me the best of both worlds. … I can do my research and spend time teaching and mentoring students.

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?

Pick something you love. If you are passionate about what you do … it makes life so much more enjoyable.

What is your favorite Rhode Island escape or hobby?

My all-time favorite Rhode Island escape is Block Island. We go every year with my husband’s family … and it is one week of fun in the sun.

How do you keep a work-life balance?

My job allows me to have enough time with my 18-month-old twins and my husband during my winter and summer breaks. … I also try to shut my email and phone down when I am home.

What one thing in your professional life would you like a do-over on?

There is nothing that I would do over. … The choices that I made got me to where I am, and I am happy and loving my career. •
