My nickname is "cupcake" by my friends, I think because I'm sweet and colorful. I also love baking cupcakes.
I think life's too short, and I try not to take it too seriously. I like to laugh, and be playful, look fear in the face, seize the day :)
I come from a big family, so being family-oriented is important to me. I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers. They mean the world to me. I am the oldest of them. My youngest brother is 13.
Self expression and open mindedness are important to me. I have tattoos, yet I am getting a PhD. You can't judge a book by its cover.
I have an intellectual side and a wild side. I am a homebody yet I also am a party person depending. Maybe it's the Gemini in me. I don't like being serious that much. Even when I am teaching a college lab, I create a playful, laid-back, fun atmosphere. I think it works, and I have won a teaching award for my education skillz :)
