When I started working at UCOP: 1997
What I do for OP in five words or less: I watch your money grow.
The best part about working for OP: The diversity here is wonderful. It is great to see such a kaleidoscope of people working together to make the university the best it can be.
Something you don’t know about me: I play the djembe, a West African drum of the Mandinka people. Its origin dates back to the great Mali Empire of the 12th century.
One weird fact about the town I grew up in: The 8-square-mile city of Santa Monica, California, has been featured in hundreds of films. The movie 17 Again was filmed at my alma mater, Santa Monica High School.
If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now): I would start a nonprofit to educate women over 40 about what it takes to stay healthy.
