Tell us what you love about working at GSSM.    

My experience as a student at GSSM was foundational in my personal development and love for scientific inquiry. Being able to share my experience and the opportunities available at GSSM with students across the state is an honor and a privilege!

Please list and describe any personal information you would like to share.

As the mother of three teenage daughters, I greatly appreciate the sacrifice families make to support a student's decision to pursue an excellent education at GSSM.
