She continues to reside in Minneapolis, after hiking and working in New Mexico (2008-2014) and studying in Nebraska. But after too many Minnesota winters, she is considering a return to the mid-Atlantic area, maybe even Richmond, promoting VCU interests and student mentoring. She welcomes contact from VCU associates.
