Favorite part of your job:
The challenging, evolving change of it all...I don’t get bored
Hometown:
Wish I knew so that when I want "to go home" I could. I'm from an Army family, born and raised on different military bases around the world, so I'm not from anywhere in particular, although I have great fondness for Puerto Rico, where my parents are from
Funniest/weirdest LNC story (did anything funny ever happen to you while working here? in your department?)...
The mouse chase, Howard's closet office, the stripper with scars and boots, everyone taking an assigned turn in reception during lunch and moving Rolando's whole office into the reception area in our former building as a joke
If I won the lottery, the first thing I would buy:
A very large building to house and care for homeless vets
The one food I would eat for the rest of my life would be:
Mangoes
If you were stranded on a desert island, and you had to take three LNCers with you, who would they be and why?
Javier, for entertainment. Marlo, to keep us moving. Miguel Serrano, for lively discussions
My first job:
Babysitting – hated it!
If you had to perform in a talent show, what would be your talent?
Telling "I remember" tales
People would be surprised to know that I ...
Learned Spanish in college, tried out for a Broadway musical, tried out for Sesame Street, and was convinced that I was an Indian Princess until the age of 6
When I grew up I wanted to ...
Live among books, which I loved... so probably a librarian would have been a good choice
Biggest pet peeve:
Whining
Favorite thing to do in spare time:
Read
Last vacation destination:
Fort Bragg, North Carolina, to visit my son at his Army base
My Favorite Quote:
Put it into perspective. We are not curing cancer.
Childhood Phobias
Taphophobia – the fear of being buried alive... ever since I saw a movie where that happened
Ultimate dream vacation
Greece and Germany
