I'm an Upstate New Yorker and am happy to have had the opportunity to live in the LA, DC, Philadelphia, and now Phoenix areas. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and exploring museums with my husband and two boys. We're learning to appreciate the beauty of the desert and the fun things to do in Arizona. I especially enjoy hiking with my family and running around the desert and mountains of the Southwest!
My boys are no strangers to academic conferences and I'm always happy when APSA, ISA, LSA, etc. make efforts to support working moms (and all parents) providing childcare, lactation rooms, and in other ways. If you are a new parent I'm glad to share my advice on navigating conferences and research trips with little ones (take what you want of it) and/or to hear your wisdom and strategies, too!
